(NAPSI)—For many, summer is a chance to read something other than a spreadsheet. If you are looking for a summer read that is entertaining and rewarding, there is good news.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in partnership with the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, developed a list of Books that Shaped Work in America.

Not intended to be dry or academic, books on the list include fiction and nonfiction, plays and poetry, graphic novels and children’s literature. From “The Grapes of Wrath” to “The Jungle” to “Working,” there are remarkable stories about work, workers and workplaces across the nation.

To mark the start of the summer reading season, 10 new books recommended by the public have been added to the list. These suggestions include work by authors such as Vonnegut, Ellison and Orwell.
