Sponsored News: Summer is getting longer and hotter. With it comes a more relaxed outlook — no school to go to, no lunch to prepare or conferences to attend. It’s a great time for catching up on guilty pleasures you might have missed nine months ago.

Summer is the perfect time to be a bookworm.

“I still cherish the notion that summer reading is more leisurely and wonderful than the rest of the year,”Kris Kleindienst, coowner of Left Bank Books St. Louis Mo. In an interview, Kleindienst told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
