Summer Reading 2012: New Books

The news website PolicyMic has a great post by Sarah Swong, a freshman at Yale University, about new must-read books this summer. Her selections are an interesting combination of fiction and non-fiction books, and her descriptions compelling and concise. Most of the books are available now although a few are soon to be published. A list of her selections is below along with links to their records in the Minuteman Catalog. You can read the full post on PolicyMic, an interesting social networking online news platform with articles by a wide variety of authors.
