Wanna know what the rich and the famous read? Well I have the list for you. J.P Morgan Private Bank, for the past eleven years has brought out a list of books that have been recommended by its wealthy clients. Called the Summer Reading List, it contains ten books, which you must read this summer. Over 450 books were recommended by the bakers from their branches all over the world. Out of this long list, ten books were selected by a committee.
