There are bibliographies (book lists) in your summer reading manuals, but you don't have to stick to them. You can ask your colleagues for ideas, check publisher's websites to see if they have created their own science themed book lists, and search the Internet. You might start with searching for "fizz boom read"<http://www.pinterest.com/search/boards/?q=fizz%20boom%20read> and “spark a reaction”<http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=spark%20a%20reaction&rs=ac&len=10> on Pinterest. You'll find mostly programming and craft ideas, but you'll also find book ideas!
