Summer reading list from Cal

It’s not too early to start thinking about summer reading! UC Berkeley recently published its annual list of recommended summer reading for incoming freshmen. This year’s list, featuring fiction and non-fiction, novels and poetry, classics and contemporary books, was compiled from the recommendations of graduating seniors.

Whether you’re in the class of 2017 or have been out of school for decades, the choices are inspiring:

How about Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert, a psychologist’s entertaining look at what makes people happy and why.

Or Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, a tale of loss and recovery as a young boy searches for clues in the wake of his father’s death in the World Trade Center collapse.
