Summer Book List – Narrowing Down

I spent last night combing through your 140 book recommendations, checking out descriptions and reviews. I also screened out the ones I’ve already read. What I’m left with are 24 books that I want to read. I tried to mix up literature with biography with history with business / finance. There’s even some sci-fi.

But for the purposes of my seven books for seven weeks initiative, I need to chop this down further. The rest I’ll get to later. So the seven will come from the list below. I’ll announce them here, and the order in which I’ll be reading, next week. I hope you guys will read some of them with me so we can all react and discuss together.
