From Dr. Stephen Krashen:

The book is now public domain. You can download as many copies as you like, make print copies, use for classes, and share with others.
Summer Reading: Program and Evidence reviews the research on "the summer slump" and the studies showing that reading for pleasure might be the cure, including Barbara Heyn's groundbreaking study. It presents, in detail, a description successful summer reading program that resulted in substantial gains in literacy development for middle school students. It also includes a case study of a high-school student whose reading scores declined during each school year, but rose substantially during each summer break. It was her summer reading that was responsible for her improvement during her high-school years.

What are you waiting for?
