In case all the books mentioned in the book club don’t give you enough reading stress, I put together an Ultimate AfterEllen Summer Reading List! It’s split into three parts: all the books from the last year you never got around to; books soon to be released; and classics.
I also created a handy-dandy Goodreads list of all the books I included, although it looks like some folks have already added some books of their own to the list. I’m not opposed to this at all, as I always enjoy a good recommendation, but I do worry about things spiraling into self promotion instead of honest recommendation. (For instance, all the books I included on my original list were genuinely my own recommendations.) And I’m not quite sure how to control or edit the list. So, hey, maybe that’s a lesson learned.
Anyhoo, putting this together was real fun, and I’m hoping to read as many as possible myself this summer, and using an “AfterEllen Summer Reading” tag on Goodreads, for anyone else who wants to play along.
