What I’m Reading This Summer

Yesterday I posted a few books that I highly recommend for your beach bag this summer. Today I thought I’d turn the tables and tell you what I’m planning on working through. I do this for two reasons. One, there are a few in this stack that I’m really excited about, and you might want to grab them as well. Two, there’s power in accountability, and if I’ve told you I’m reading them, some of you might just ask me about it in August, and I need to have a decent answer.

These are in no particular order other than an alphabetical one. What am I leaving off the list that you’d recommend? Comment below.

41: A Portrait of My Father (George W. Bush)

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us (Daniel H. Pink)

Durham Tales: The Morris Street Maple, the Plastic Cow, the Durham Day that Was and More (Jim Wise)
