About This Quiz

It's like, school is done, and they get you excited about summer and all this time that you have off. But then they trick you and make you read books that you'll be tested on in the next school year? When does it end? The good news is that not all summer reading books have to be boring and irrelevant to your life. There are millions of books out there, and yet only some make it onto the prestigious summer reading lists. While there is a logical explanation to that (copyright, approvals, etc.), it doesn't negate the fact that no one wants to sit around reading when they could be at the pool or beach.

As an adult, you get to pick your own summer reading books, and reading magically becomes enjoyable when you get to choose the book! This quiz is for you. What are you reading while your kids are playing outside? Which novel are you digging your nose into while dinner is cooking? Summertime is the perfect occasion for getting in as much reading as you can, especially since you can do it outside. Think we can guess what you've got on the docket this year?
