Stephen King’s Summer Reading List

In the new Entertainment Weekly, (5/22), Stephen King picks seven books for summer reading and one of them is Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (“as easy to read as any current bestseller” — wonder if that blurb will appear on future editions?).

Another unexpected pick is Jodi Picoult’s newest, Handle With Care,

You men out there who think Ms. Picoult is a chick thing need to get with the program. Her books are an everyone thing, and the current offering — about a little girl whose bones are so brittle that they break almost at a puff of wind — is her best since My Sister’s Keeper

The other five titles, from Michael Robotham’s Shatter to Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle, may be less surprising, but it’s fun to read King’s short takes on each one.
