60 Books for the Summer is an initiative of the MEP Library Lovers Group to promote reading and literacy and showcase the work of authors from different national and linguistic backgrounds.
The 60 Books for the Summer reading list is an eclectic mix of literary works. It is compiled of MEP favourites and reflects the love MEPs share for European culture and cultural diversity, their commitment to social inclusion, and passion for history and literature.
The list is as diverse as Europe itself, it has something to soothe the soul of even the pickiest reader and offers inspiration to even the most erudite and up-to-date reader.
More than anything, the list reveals the personal preferences, and even the guilty pleasures MEPs have in common with the people they represent. Not only with the people from their constituency, but with the “European reader” at large.
