summer reading list

“summertime, soak up the season with you.”

Its been a while since I read a good book that changed my life. That’s why I am making it a goal, no a priority to read a few life changing books this summer season.

So here is my reading list. Dig it if you can. Let me know what you have read and what you liked the best. I would love to say I’ll get through them all, but the summer (+ the rest of May) is barely 120 days.
