Hi Everyone! It’s Jennifer here.

This week’s post for Great New Books is different than our other posts, but it is to announce a few things — Great New Books is turning 5 this summer! To celebrate, commemorate, and enjoy, we are paring back our postings for our first lighter summer reading schedule.

Summer Reads with Great New Books

This summer 2017, look for Great New Book recommendations every other week throughout June, July, and August. In September, we will start back up with a new favorite book every week.

All of us love to read, especially books throughout the summer. Whether it’s on the beach, beside the pool, or books on audio on roadtrips, summertime reading is a favorite.
