SURVEY SAYS: The New York Times issued its summer reading list last week. It is time for our annual summer reading list survey as well. The thought behind a summer reading list is that people will take vacations and have more time to read; however, with financial insecurity, travel restrictions and health fears caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, summer may look different for many. This week, I’d like to know, do you still have vacation plans this summer, and do you expect to have more time to read this summer than you usually do? And I still want you to share suggestions for a summer reading list. You may respond to this week’s survey by 6 p.m. Pacific time today.
