Summer Reading 2021: Book Culture Pittsford
It's finally here, our favorite time of the year: summer reading season! There's just something about the warm weather that gets us excited to get lost in a good book, whether it's a classic that we're revisiting (or finally getting to!) or that new book we've been hearing so much about. Here, then, are some of the books we're looking forward to reading this summer.

Susan's Reading List
- Why Didn't You Just Do What You Were Told? by Jenny Diski: Jenny Diski was a regular contributor to the London Review of Books. This collection of essays gathers her best. Like a strong opinion? Pick up a cold summer drink and take a sip of this new release.
- Bill Cunningham Was There by John Kurdewan and Steven Stolman: I still miss Bill's weekly On the Street photo essays in The New York Times. This new release brings Bill and his photos back into view. Who wouldn't want to linger over photographs from the man who said, "He who looks for beauty, finds it"?
- The Recent East by Thomas Grattan: OK, I have a strong interest in things German. And I love a big, plot-twisty, family drama. This book promises to satisfy both. I'll grab this book on the first rainy day and settle in.
Katie’s Reading List
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune: I’ve been hearing people talk about this book nonstop since it came out; it’s one of the first books I hope to read this summer!
The Spy and the Traitor by Ben Macintyre: I’ve had my eye on The Spy and the Traitor for a few months now. It tells the true story of Oleg Gordievsky, a Russian spy who worked as a double agent for the KGB and MI6 during the Cold War. I’ve heard it’s a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat read; I’m looking forward to picking it up.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson: After reading and loving the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson, I’ve decided to take the plunge and start his massive ongoing series, The Stormlight Archive. I’ve been wanting to start some new fantasy series this summer, and I think this will be a great start!
