A Look at Some Summer Reading Suggestions for Pleasure
  • Opening Intro -

    The summer is a gift that people earn by bearing nine months of rain and gloom bravely.

    During this season, the skies are clear, there is little or no humidity, and the evenings are cool.

    The best part of it is that an individual can get a chance to sit outside and read a book.


Whenever someone finds themselves – by a pool, at the beach or simply on the couch with the air conditioning on, they will need a good book. Below is a look at some summer reading suggestions.

‘Seveneves’ by Neal Stephenson

For those who love science fiction, then this is the perfect summer reading for them. The plot is introduced right in the novel’s first sentence, as the moon blows up. Human beings learn that a cataclysmic meteor shower will wipe out all living things on earth in two years’ time. This spurs the world to unite and come up with a plan to save humanity by sending as many space crafts as possible into space. Readers may become a bit disoriented with all the information that Stephenson provides about the space flight. However, they will definitely like the technical details.

‘How Not to be Wrong’ by Jordan Ellenberg

Ellenberg, who happens to be a mathematician, explains how math play into the day-to-day lives of people without them even knowing it. Each chapter begins with an apparently straightforward subject such as electoral politics. The subject is then used as a jump off point to discuss the math involved. While in some areas the math can get quite complicated, Ellenberg always simplifies things by ensuring that the reader is still with him. The main point of the book is that there are ways in which all people are doing math all the time.

‘The Vital Question’ by Nick Lane

Lane is one of those original thinkers who make people think that they should know more about his work. In this book, he is trying to redeem a scientific wrong by making people fully appreciate the role played by energy in all living things. According to him, humans can only understand the way life started, and how living things became so complex, by figuring out how energy works. Even if the details of Lane’s work turns out to be wrong, his focus on energy will be perceived as a crucial contribution to people understands of where they came from.

‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ by Noah Yuval Harari

In this book, Harari takes on a rather overwhelming challenge of telling the whole human race’s history in just 400 pages. In addition, he explores how technologies such as genetic engineering and artificial intelligence will change the human future.

The above-mentioned books will go a long way in keeping the reader entertained during the summer. It is advisable to share this article on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. This will enable other book enthusiasts find out about them.
