Summer Reading Lists

What's on America's summer reading list? All Things Considered asked listeners around the country — including a rancher, a nuclear engineer, a retiree and an elementary school student — what theyre reading this summer. Their choices range from best-selling fiction to the history of Egyptian mythology. (2:15) The Dying Ground, by Nichelle Tramble is published by Random House. The music comes from the CD's Sweet Tea, by Buddy Guy, on Silvertone Records Ltd. and I am Shelby Lynne, by Shelby Lynne from Island records.
