I remember taking summers off from academia when I was in college. I needed that time to work an insane number of hours at a crazy job to pay for my fall and spring semesters. But let it not be said that I let my brain rot during those weeks away from the classroom; I usually had a list of books I wanted to read. If I had known then about U.C. Berkely's Summer Reading List, I would have saved myself a lot of time and really boring reading. Check the list our here:
