Jewish Books for a Good Summer Read

Looking for a summer reading list with books on Jewish topics? Look no further.
Nextbook, a project of Keren Keshet – The Rainbow Foundation. Though the website’s reading list program is quite good, their extensive reviews, suggestions by subject, links to other Jewish resources, and general user-friendliness make the site worthwhile.

The New York Jewish Week, who has also reviewd Nextbook, reccomends the following sites as well:
The one-man-site MyJewishBooks.com includes reviews of new titles, information about author appearances, a book club, lists of book award winners, a message board, purchase links and a featured book every two weeks.
The National Yiddish Book Center highlights a monthly book selected from their list of the 100 best Jewish books, with excerpts and essays; they also sell print-on-demand copies of Yiddish books.
Jewishbookmall.com includes books listed by many topics along with introductory text, providing links to many other sites, as does the bi-lingual resource Hareshima.com, a list of Jewish and Israeli sites.
