No matter the time, place or headspace, everyone loves finding a good book that is impossible to put down. Books give you the ability to let go of everything that is going on around you and get lost within what you are reading. They also can free your mind and allow you to become a better version of yourself. At Bidtellect, we love a good summer reading experience and wanted to share with you some of our favorites.

The Power of Moments by Chip Heath & Dan Heath

The Lost Painting of Sara De Vos by Dominic Smith

Thanks to: Lisa Friedman, Director of Sales, East

“I love this book – almost finished. I love historical fiction and this one features three main characters from different countries, centuries, and lives that become integrated through a famous work of art dating back to the 1600s. The characters are so intriguing and the story pulls you into the exciting world of art and culture.”

Truth Matters, Love Wins by Alexandra J. Kuisis

Thanks to: Courtney Bonkowski, Accounting Manager

“I devoured this book in two sittings. It was so engaging and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. A great perspective builder and reminder that your attitude in a situation or toward a person can have more to do with the outcome of your interactions than we often give credit for.”

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

Thanks to: Abigail Kozacek Bojanic, Account Manager, Central

“This book starts off strong and there is no ‘waiting period’ for it to get good! It has some heavy content for a coming-of-age story but is so beautifully written you won’t be able to put it down.”

The House on Paradise Street by Sofka Zinovieff

Thanks to: Charlotte Otremba, Director of Communications and Marketing

“When I traveled to Greece earlier this summer, I wanted to learn more about Greece and its people beyond the tourist attractions I planned to visit. I’m so glad I brought this book along with me. This historical fiction novel follows two different women who live/lived in the same house in Athens; one abandoned her children years earlier to move to Russia, the other married into the family as a British “outsider”. Through two different lenses of WWII and the Greek Civil War, we uncover a dark secret, the reasons for these womens’ decisions, and gain extraordinary empathy and love for the Greek people and all they’ve been through. I couldn’t put it down. If you want an escape and love history, I highly recommend this!”

Hopefully these recommendations suit you well! There is no better way to end your summer than with a little escape from reality as you delve into a new book.
