Great Summer Reads
Summer is the perfect time to catch up on the mountain of books that you've been meaning to read for months. There's nothing like sitting in a park or on your porch (if you live outside of NYC, LOL!) with a good book. Whether it's a biography (my favorite), novel, self-help book or something in between, they all allow us to escape from the stresses of the world and take time for ourselves.
Unfortunately, this year I haven't been reading as much as I usually do, but with a few upcoming out-of-town trips planned, I know that I'll have plenty of time to do just that at my least favorite place - the airport!
What are you reading this summer? What's your favorite book of all time (if you can name just one)?
Here are a few books that are on my MUST READ list for the summer:
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama
Green With Envy: Why Keeping Up with the Joneses is Keeping Us in Debt by Shira Boss
Ghettonation: A Journey into the Land of Bling and the Home of Shameless. She has a follow-up coming out in September, so I want to read this one first!
Cooked: From the Streets to the Stove, from Cocaine to Foie Gras by Jeff Henderson
Lies At the Altar: The Truth About Great Marriages by Dr. Robin Smith
