Summer Reading List

"What's Good," the guide of all guides — the creme de la creme — thebane of our intern existence — goes to press tomorrow. With greatpride, we say goodbye to the hours spent in the "morgue" at the SevenDays office, finding the dankest of dank places for ourreaders to explore. We have squeezed all of our brains drycoming up with places to go, people to see, and words to know.

So,rather than making you wait with breath that is bated for "What's Good"to hit the stands, we've asked the workers at Vermont parks and ferriesto tell us what they're reading while they sit in their huts collectingcash from cars.

When we headed out on this adventure to createa "summer reading list" recommended from Burlington Parks andRecreation workers and ferry watchers, we assumed that everyone wouldbe reading books. Call us naive, but we figured books werethe only option for these folks. We were, however, proved wrong. Itseems us millennials (the technologically savvy born around 1985-1992)do more than flip pages. Equipped with iPods, X-Boxes andlaptops, they are having more of a multimedia experience than weexpected.
