2016 Summer Reading List

The Summer of 2016 officially kicks off this weekend.

There will be backyard barbeques, days at the pool and beach, political conventions, mosquito bites, fireworks, sunburns, summer loves and the inevitable song of the summer (we’re already calling this one).

The summer also presents many people with an opportunity to slow down (albeit just a little bit in this hectic election year) and pick up a good book or two to read.

And there are plenty of options from the likes James Patterson, David Baldacci, Danielle Steel, Louis Erdrich, Curtis Sittenfeld and so many more to choose from, we thought our readership might be interested in a few books that are a bit closer to their hearts.

What follows are reviews of four election-related books that we thought you may enjoy this summer. And unlike assigned reading in school, we will not expect a book report in September! Happy Reading! Read More…
