Summer Reading List 2012 | Week 8

What would summer be without a good reading list? Throughout the summer BGSU faculty, staff and students will share their picks for best summer reading. We hope you find time to read some of the selections and share your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of the page!


Also consider the 2012 BGSU Common Read, A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean by Tori Murden McClure.

For me, a good read has a well-developed plot, with several sub-plots running parallel to the main story. I really enjoy characters who are tenacious in their quests and approach life with a perspective different from mine. A really good book causes me to think and grow!

  • Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo
    A little boy’s actual experience with life after death
  • Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has a unique approach to capturing suspected criminals
  • Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich
    Not sure what this is about, but Janet is always a fun read!

Books I’ve read and would recommend:

  • Zeitoun by Dave Eggers
    The true story of one family’s Hurricane Katrina experience
  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
    A year in the life of a family eating the food of their own land, supplemented by locally grown food
