Summer Reading Hits from Smithsonian.com

Among my favorite sites to visit on-line is Smithsonian.com, which for someone unable to see its actual museums in person is the next best option. They also have a steady stream of book-related articles, ranging from pieces on Thomas Jefferson’s writings to the tales about early librarians who carried around texts on horseback.

One of their latest articles by Austin Clemens focuses on the most popular reading material here in America during the summer:

Apparently Sci-Fi and Fantasy are the most popular literary genres to enjoy on a nice summer’s day.

Is anyone surprised by these findings, and what books are on your reading list for the summer? Please feel free to comment below!
