What do Steph VanderMeulen, Vicki Ziegler, Daniel Francis, Sarah Leavitt, Chad Pelley, Eve Corbel, Evan Munday, and Nancy Flight have in common? No time for boring books. That's because they are—variously—reviewers, bloggers, publishers, authors, editors, and publicists who spend a huge amount of time thinking about and working with or on books. So when it comes to the simple pleasure of reading, the book has to be good. We asked the bunch of them for the Canadian reads they couldn't put down this summer and got a delightfully eclectic list as a result.
