Needless to say, we will not be reading the sequel to Precious.

And speaking of summer reading, NPR has been putting together a number of genre-specific recommended reading lists, including crime fiction, cookbooks, and historical novels. Their selections are frequently too gloomy for our tastes, but they've recommended a few books we're excited about, too: Manuel Munoz's What You See in the Dark (which we would buy based on the cover alone), blogger Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Every Day, Dorothy Wickenden's Nothing Daunted, a nonfiction account of her grandmother's adventures as a pioneer schoolteacher, and Ben Mezrich's Sex on the Moon, which will also be turning up on our list of recommended Father's Day Gifts... if we get around to making one in time.
