Summer reading lists have been a staple of summer vacation for years. They help to avoid brain drain and keep students thinking when they are physically and mentally far, far away from the classroom. As you may be able to tell from our monthly Tutor.com book club blog posts, we love reading! And while in the past we may have lounged poolside or under a tree with a dog-eared paperback, now we all read on lots of different devices.
Below are a few summer reading recommendations from our team and what we’ll read it on. We hope it inspires you to pick up or download a book before summer comes to an end!
“Dogwood by Chris Fabry on my new Kindle which I received as a gift from my sweet husband on Mother’s Day. Dogwoodwas a recommended title for me by Amazon based on my previous reads.” Sandi White, VP Sales
“I’ll be re-reading all of my Mary Kay Andrews chick-lit paperbacks. She’s a Southern author and typically sets her books in Georgia. One of my favorites, which I started re-reading last night is Deep Dish. I figure reading these will help put me in the mood for my big move to Georgia in August.” Susan DelRosario, Account Executive
“Rework, by Jason Fried and David Hansson. It was strongly recommended by a friend, highly reviewed on Amazon, and has a great blurb from Mark Cuban, the cofounder of HDNet and owner of the Dallas Mavericks: ‘If given a choice in someone who has read Rework or has his MBA, I’m investing in Rework every time . . . . a must-read.’ I borrowed this from my local library. My recommendation for an interesting but not too heavy summer read is The Tyranny of Dead Ideas: Letting Go of the Old Ways of Thinking to Unleash a New Prosperity, by Matt Miller.” Bart Epstien, Senior VP & General Manager, Military and Federal
