Morning Living's 2012 Summer Reading List

Posted by

From Steve Jobs to kitchen mysteries, we’re hitting the books this summer! 

Last week on "Morning Living" we asked our listeners for “50 Ways to Kick Off Summer,” and they did not disappoint.  Along with all of their great suggestions we were also able to put together the ultimate summer reading list. Whether you’re looking for a great book to enjoy for a sunny day at the beach, or one for those quiet evenings on the porch, here are our listeners’ top picks.  Feel free to suggest more for us, and check out the gallery below featuring some of the covers.

  • It is very dissapointing to hear so many repeat shows on Sirius xm 110. Many are shows from several months ago and do not pertain to what present month we are in. Thanks for listening.
