Leaders are readers. Reading helps you discover ideas to try and expand your mental models. In this post, Summer is a time when leaders read more widely. Last week, I described my process to choosing books for my summer reading list. This week I point you to several eclectic lists that will help you decide what to read this summer.
“The page is a reading list sharing the best books to read in various categories based on many hours of reading and research. You’ll find more than 100 good books to read, organized by category.”
“Whether you’re headed to a far-flung beach or a nearby couch, these books are worthy additions to your summer reading list.”
“The season’s thrillers, true crime, romances and plenty more will delight readers of all stripes and feathers.”
“For the summer, The Atlantic’s writers and editors have picked sets of books to match your mood. Do you want to be transported to another place, or are you looking to feel a sense of wonder about the universe? Perhaps you’re just seeking a comforting new spin on a familiar story. We’re also here with suggestions for taking a deep dive into a single subject, or for anyone with a hunger to better understand our world. And if you want a preview of what your friends might be reading, we’ve got you covered too. Below are 21 books to accompany you through the coming months.”
“Each of the writers—three novelists, a journalist, and a scientist—was able to take a meaty subject and make it compelling without sacrificing any complexity. I loved all five of these books and hope you find something here you’ll enjoy too.”
“When it comes to information, we’re living in an age of super-abundance. As much as I love reading about and compiling new book lists, we can’t forget about the thousands of books published every year that don’t always stay in the public consciousness.”
Reading recommendations are a regular feature of this blog. Want more recommendations about what to read? Monday is “Book Day.” Come back for book reviews, reading lists and other reading-related posts.
