Some day soon the weather will cooperate and act like autumn. The mornings will get that crisp smell, the dusk will happen a little earlier in the day, and we will know we are heading for winter and hunkering down. But for now, in these last days of summer, there is still time to grab some lemonade, find an available hammock on a weekend day and enjoy a good, just-for-the-fun-of-it read.
The following lists are books that our family has enjoyed over the years - fun books, historical fiction, just good stories, and mysteries. The lists are divided for younger (first chunk of books on a list) and for high school (second chunk). Head outside with one of these and enjoy the last bits of summer.
