We've complied this annual list of books to read the summer before college (or during your free time if you're already in college). We should be clear about one thing upfront: this is not the typical list of the same old books you'll find at every "required summer reading" table at Barnes and Nobles and local library across America. These are probably not the books you've been assigned to read in high school either. This list is eclectic and balances obscure titles with prize winners. It features both male and female authors, writers from North America and from other countries around the world.
