Thoughts on Creating Summer Reading Lists

Thoughts are turning to summer reading lists. Here are some samples available online:
- for Gr. 11 Socials from Reynold's Secondary
- LadLit from Dr. Charles Best Secondary Library

- YALSA'S 2008 Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults and Best Books for Young Adults 2008

The Alex Awards lists from YALSA as well as their wiki on recommended summer reading which includes Librarians' Choice: 100 Super Summer Reads for Teens.

I'm mulling over a plan to hold an online summer reading club using a wiki. My to do list includes:
- compiling reading lists
- deciding on cool prizes
- plan for holding an organizational meeting for students before the end of June.

This blog on youth literature from Australia caught my eye: Read Alert
And this interesting column on the state of reading from the New York Times.
