This is a great list of summer 2012 suggestions for book groups compiled by Indie Next, the publication of independent bookstores. Starting with a top 10 list, it includes title suggestions in eight discussion-starting categories (noted for each selection). Best of all, the library owns multiple copies of most of these titles and all titles are available in paperback should book group members prefer to purchase copies. Happy Summer Reading Together!
