AWESOME THING OF THE DAY: Summer Reading In Flowchart Form
June 15, 2012
submit to reddit

All right: it's almost summer. If you're a teenager, the break is a great opportunity to get a part-time job, a sun-tan, and maybe catch up on some reading (just good clean fun, right?). But what to read? There are a lot of books out there, so to help you decide which one's right for your mood, the website has created this flowchart specifically for teens' summer reading - or for anyone who never got around to growing up.

It's got lots of great selections, and you can decide what you feel like. Want classic fiction? Start at the top. Contemporary fiction's a little further down, and non-fiction rounds out the chart. It's unlikely that even the most focused speed-reader could get through all the books in one summer - but that's what next year's for.
