Tell Us What You're Reading for a Chance to Win a Kindle!

We're assembling a list of summer book recommendations and rewarding one Berkley Patch reader just for helping.

What are you reading right now?

What did your kiddos finish reading last night?

Summer is in full swing, and so are the summer reading programs at the Huntington Woods and Berkley Public Libraries

We're continuing to build our 2012 Summer Reading Guide and looking for Patch readers to help. Post a comment with your reading recommendation; one commenter will be chosen at random Monday to win a new Kindle e-reader.

And, speaking of reading recommendations, Patch has put together (with the help of bestselling author James Patterson) a list of age-specific titles that you should check out.

  •  Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina and more.
  •  The Houdini Box By Brian Selznick and more.
  •  Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos and more.
  • One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia and more.

If you like any of these, or have other well-loved books to share, tell us all about it. 

Post a comment with your book recommendation (for kids or adults) by noon Monday, July 30, to enter.

A Patch editor will pick a winner at random; that winner will be contacted Monday afternoon and will have until noon Thursday to respond in order to claim the prize. The Kindle we're giving away is the 6-inch version shown here.

The contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older. And this wouldn't be a contest without a .

What have you read this summer?

I'm reading "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn and the 5th book in the "Song of Ice and Fire" (the series on which HBO's "Game of Thrones" is based) series by George R. R. Martin. My son, who's 9, is reading the second series of the "Warriors" books by Erin Hunter.
