Your Summer Reading Lists

Two new, summery lists of indie bookseller-recommended titles are out now—in stores, online, and on the IndieBound app for iPhone.

The Summer 2009 Kids' Indie Next List looks great. Recommendations are categorized by age groups, from four-ish to teen-ish—or, if you're like me, well into adulthood—plus an overall Top 10 list.

The Spring/Summer 2009 Reading Group Indie Next List has a Top 10, as well as thematic lists like Memorable Women, The Impact of War, and Visiting Other Worlds—featuring one of my favorite writers, Amelie Nothomb.

You can look through all these lists here on, but you can also browse and buy recommended titles on your iPhone. The IndieBound app for iPhone regularly updates these and other book lists, like the monthly Indie Next List and weekly Indie Bestseller Lists. You can also see archives of months past, right in the app.

Use the Indie Store Finder, also in the app, to find indie bookstores near you and see these lists in person!
