I've just listed a boatload of Summer Reading List books my high schoolers have used the past few years and that we no longer need as they move in to college.   I'm not offering a deal (sorry) on them but am sharing here for the parents like me who had to painstakingly search for these books one by one by one by one every single summer. 

However, I found a book that my son neatly notated within the first third (Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell (hardcover, no dust jacket, former library book), Things Fall Apart by Chinus Achebe (highlighted and some notes, soft cover) and also The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran which was neatly highlighted in yellow (hard cover with dust jacket).  I will be happy to send Outliers, Things Fall Apart or The Prophet as a freebie along with a matching order from my bookshelf.  Just order your book and send me a PM if you'd like one of those books. 

This is the current list as of this moment but I do have orders arriving pretty steadily so please order any book you know your student will need for this summer or fall.  Happy reading!
