Summer technically begins next week, but there's no need to wait until you're in the doldrums to escape with a new novel or an old favorite. Now's the perfect time to head outside and cross off a few bucket list books ("Infinite Summer," anyone?) before humid, 90-degree days lull you into complacency and cat naps.

If you aren't sure what to read during your extra hours of sunlight this summer, Teach.com made this handy infographic to help you out. It may not introduce a ton of new titles, but offers a nice mix of classic non-fiction, short story collections, young adult novels and more for you to read whether beachside, poolside, or cozied up next to your air conditioning unit.
