SUMMER READING

With this unusual spring, it should be easy to get into the spirit of summer reading. What's on your list? What do you hope to read this summer, or re-read? What do you recommend to friends who are going up to the lake?

Send your recommendations -- with a brief explanation as to why -- to Laurie Hertzel, Star Tribune, 425 Portland Av. S., Mpls, 55488 or to lhertzel@ startribune.com. Please include your full name and your address. We'll run your suggestions with our summer reading package on June 3.
