[REVISITED] Conversations' 25 Summer Reads of 2013

Conversations Book Club is excited to announce its picks for Summer reads in 2013. The list, compiled by Conversations Media Group President Cyrus Webb, is a combination of titles by authors who were both established as well as rising literary stars.

Topping the list of Summer Reads this year is "The Power Trip" by Jackie Collins. As one of Webb's favorite authors it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to interview her for this special anniversary issue of the magazine. The rest of the list is comprised of amazing talent as well. "I read so many great books each year it was difficult to put this list together," says Webb. "The 25 that were finally chosen, though, I believe showcases something for everyone."

Webb began Conversations Book Club in November 2006 as a co-ed reading group for individuals of all walks of life and backgrounds. Since then chapters have created around the South as well as online, uniting readers around the power of books.

It is Webb's hope that this list will give you many hours of enjoyment throughout the Summer.
