Well, it's July, which means it's time for another "What are you
reading?" discussion on Gather. This time we started it a couple of days
early to coincide with Kerri Miller's summer reading segment on
Midmorning. So far our discussion has been busy, with lots of
recommendations and debates surrounding some great books! Check it:
Gather regular Peter Joseph Swanson kicks off the discussion:

I always say the Tinseltown Trilogy by Peter Joseph Swanson makes the best summer beach reading (there's even beaches) - but that's just me ...
and discussion ensues, leading to comments like this one from Beverly:

This is fun. The adult books I hope to read are Relentless by Dean Koontz, My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult, and Nicholas Sparks's latest The Last Song, though it doesn't come out until September.
Young adult books on my list: The Hunger Games, Winter Girls, Slidng on the Edge.
Nonfiction: Under Siege! Three Children at the Civil War Battle for Vicksbury, by Andrea Warren. I'm especially interested in this book because I've been to Vicksburg several times and wrote a young adult novel about the siege. Also I'm reading for a review No Teachers Left Behind, by HBF Teacher, which reminds me a lot of Up the Down Staircase.
I read mostly Young Adult stories because that's what I write. Will add the ones mentioned to my list.
Buzz on over mnreaders.gather.com and let us know what you're reading
this July or give recommendations to others. Happy reading!
