Our Seven Degrees Annual Reading List

August 26, 2015



As the days become shorter and the 23rd of September approaches, we challenge you to take a few hours to yourself to accomplish summer reading. While “All That Is” by James Salter, “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr, and “The Sixth Extinction” by Elizabeth Kolbert are the top three books on President Obama’s summer reading list, we ask what your summer reading list looks like. Does your list consist of fictional books to help you escape your everyday thoughts? Does your list include nonfiction books designed to help you professionally? Our list consists of both but each of them have one common theme— they are all written by a friend of Seven Degrees Communications.

From a political book to a cook book, a standardized test book to a leadership book, our list displays a large array of topics. While you may not find a need for each of these books within the next few weeks, we ask you to keep this list handy for a time you or someone you know would like some insight on entertaining guests, guidance, or possibly taking the ACT.
