The Avid Reader June 2007

Dear Book Lover,

Summer reading. We love it. So much so, we've devoted a whole new section of our site to it, from beach books under $10 to the summer's hottest new releases. We're also embarking on a literary trip around the world! For the next six months, we'll 'visit' a new country each issue. First stop: the heat and passion of Brazil. And, of course, don't forget to check out last month's most expensive books sold!

Happy Reading!
