What’s on your summer reading list?

If you’re an entrepreneur, chances are you don’t have much extra time for summer reading. But if you’re planning to take a break from the daily grind and want to keep your business mind sharp, there are many good books just raring to be read.

This list from Amazon includes some of the most popular books as ranked by online readers. The top-rated 40 Super Tips for Networking You and Your Business promises to improve the way people perceive, respect and respond to you (and has notes of the grandfather of all people-skills books, first published in 1937 to roaring success, How To Win Friends And Influence People). Inc.com also has some great reading lists, including what they consider the top business books ever penned as well as the absolute essentials for new entrepreneurs.

But not all entrepreneur-related reading has to be about networking, guerilla marketing tactics and cash flow strategies.

For anyone looking to get back to fundamentals, there’s also this list of must reads focused on developing the self, including The 7 Habits of Highly Effective PeopleThe Long Tail and the oft-quoted canon Good to Great.

Feel free to add your selections!
