Not sure what to read this summer? Join the Lisa Simpson Book Club


Yesterday I discovered my new favorite Tumblr: The Lisa Simpson Book Club.

The account is compiling a library of pictures of the “precocious eight-year-old” character reading books and magazines, along with quotes from literary-themed scenes. Seeing as “The Simpsons” is in its 23rd season — and Lisa is quite the reader — it should be a lively and long-lasting book club.

The site has also started a list of titles Lisa has on her bookshelf, including some you might want to take along to the beach this weekend:

“The Bell Jar,” by Sylvia Plath.

“The Master of the Senate,” by Robert Caro.

“The Corrections,” by Jonathan Franzen.

“The Joy Luck Club,” by Amy Tan.

“Moneyball,” by Michael Lewis.

Again, you can read the full list on Tumblr and submit your own titles.
