Eng9HSummerReadingLists Deb Shumaker English Honors9 Reading List You may not read books more than once for credit (for summer reading, for class study, and/or for Reading Workshop). You must read three (3) books from this list. You will complete My Reader s Journal for these three (3) books. Due on Monday, August 17. The following is a list of suggested reading for college-bound students. My suggestion for you is to select a book based on one or more of these three criteria: your knowledge of the author, a skimming of the book (read the cover or jacket, a bit of the beginning, and a portion somewhere in the middle.), or advice of others who have recommended the book. You may pick up most of these books at your local library or the Norwell Library Media Center. You may also purchase them at your local bookstores —it’s sometimes nice to have your own copy so that you can write in the book. Several of these books are also available as ebooks. If you have an ereader and your parents don’t mind purchasing the book, I would suggest this format. (Ebooks increase vocabulary because they allow the user to easily look up definitions in context.) I cannot promise that all the books on this list will be free of objectionable material. What is objectionable to one may not be objectionable to another. Choose wisely.
