Summer Reading Help

The Brother Karamazov, listed by librarian and First Lady Laura Bush as one of her favorite books
Written by Harold Henkel, Associate Librarian

It’s not quite summer in the astronomical sense, but we are now just over a month into the summer term. So how is your summer reading coming? If you are beginning to feel your good reading intentions slipping through your fingers again, help is available from an unlikely source: The Wall Street Journal.

Every week, The Wall Street Journal publishes a distinguished author’s choice of “Five Best” books on a particular subject. The range of subjects is almost unlimited. Recent selections have included Five Best: “Windows on the Cold War,” “Stories of Fathers and Daughters,” “Essential Reading on World War II,” and “Entrancing Tales of Dislocation.” Selectors have included Lyndall Gordon, Alexandra Styron, Robert Alter, and Fouad Ajami.

The Wall Street Journal gives free access to the most recent Five Best columns on its website. Five Best columns going back to 2005 can be retrieved by logging into the WSJ page in ABI/Inform and then searching “five best” in the database.
