Every summer I enjoy discovering new books to read (or to listen to on Audible). I love to put together an annual summer reading list for myself and my friends and this year’s version is now here! I included light, biographical, coffee table and society books that may peak your interest.
So whether laying inside with the air conditioning blasting, by the pool, under a shade tree or at the beach I truly try find time to read a few choice books each summer and hope you will too.

Since I was a kid reading has always been an escape for me of sorts especially during difficult times and clearly the summer of 2020 has been challenging for everyone.
Finding a good book (and might I mention an old favorite) to drown yourself in is just good therapy in my opinion. I researched and crawled around the Amazon charts for some great suggestions that have great reviews that might appeal to you.
Now one thing I want to point out that as a certified workaholic I try to stay away from too many business and marketing books these days, sorry not sorry.
I consume a ton of blogs, social media and vlogs on YouTube to satisfy my “learning” need so I really try to focus on light and easy reads vs something I feel the need to take notes on.
However, with that being said, I have included a few of my quick read marketing and branding books on my summer reading list that I think you will enjoy and that might inspire you in your own business or if you are considering starting a business.
The books I chose are in no particular order and I have not read them all. Just click on the links for short summaries! PS…don’t forget to peruse your local library online for lists and suggestions too!
