Jimmy Fallon launches first-ever 'Tonight Show' book club

To kick off what he calls the "summer of reading", late-night host Jimmy Fallon announced a contest for viewers to select their summer read.

On Friday, Fallon announced that he was launching "The Tonight Show's" first ever-book club, dubbed the "Tonight Show Summer Reads", reports people.com.

"Summer's here and I don't really have books to read. I don't have a good summer book to read," Fallon said, following his opening monologue.

"But I want to be there. I want to be walking around with that book that everyone's got, like 'Oh you?' Yeah, me," the late-night host joked.

Being that he hasn't seen a "book club since Oprah", Fallon revealed five books in the running to be the club's first pick.

The late-night host requested that audience members vote on which book they would like to read with him during his July vacation.
