What Are You Reading This Summer?

It’s that time again, our annual summer reading show! A good summer read might be the perfect way to kick off those vacation months, but how will you choose a stimulating and relaxing book for at home or the beach? How do you know where to start and where can you find the newest releases from your favorite authors? Join us Monday as we discuss a few of the most highly recommended novels for summer 2009 and perhaps you’ll find your next heart wrenching, exhilarating, can't-put-it-down page turner.
