With the Memorial Day weekend ahead, now is a great time to expand your horizons with a few good books this summer. If you’re not sure where to start, I’ve got you covered. I collect reading lists.
Several book lists popped up the past few weeks that should offer something for everyone (not just investing books). The lists below should give you ideas for putting your own summer reading list together.
- Bill Gates posted 5 summer reading suggestions.
- Meb Faber polled his readers on the one investing book to read that resulted in a long list of possibilities.
- Morgan Housel posted a list of books that changed his life.
- Here’s the book selection list from the recent Berkshire Hathaway meeting (pdf).
And if that’s not enough here are a few more lists from earlier this year:
- A list of Charlie Munger recommendations that will make you smarter.
- Richard Branson compiled a wide-ranging list of 70 must-read books.
- Jim O’Shaughnessy delivered a two-parter of great books to read on vacation (part 1 and part 2).
If you can’t find anything interesting in those lists, I’ve added about 30 articles and transcripts from Graham, Buffett, Munger, Schloss, and Lynch to the Library (shameless plug). You might find something interesting in there.
