light reading, heavy drinking

summertime book club: middle school summer reading list* !

books you loved and should read one more time.
it'll take you 2 hours and probably make you a teeny bit happy.

these are some of mine, but there are so many more...

i am determined to actually make this happen!...so get out all your salinger and start to prepare, i will send out a mass email soon

ps, i hate when they re-do covers to be "hip". it makes me want to cry. but that's a whole nother post, meng.

*ok, some of these are high school. that's ok too. middle school just sounds better, doesn't it? oh, and i will make an exception for elementary school for the following: bunnicula, encyclopedia brown, anne of green gables, or little house on the prairie.

Ooh, I did this last summer and re-read franny & zoe, catcher in the rye and nine stories. It was fun.
I never read Weetzie Bat,though, so I'm adding that to my summer reading list.
