From the Bradley Library at Westlake Academy:
Summer reading is fun for all ages! It's important to spend time reading during the summer months in order to avoid the summer slide, a tendency to lose some of the gains from the previous school year. These are favorite finds from across the web that encourage reading as an enjoyable summer activity.
If you need book lists and challenges before browsing the library and bookstore shelves, then this site will give you great ideas!

I am including a link to a Washington Post article that discusses the key components of time and choice and their relationship to reading for pleasure!
