With Summer well under way, you may be looking for a way to enjoy your downtime while maintaining social distance.

One perfect way to do that is with a good book.

Melissa Dalton Martinez from The Book Break joined us to recommend three great books for every kind of reader.

Melissa's first recommendation is for the person who wants to be a good leader, whether that be a leader in their home, school, or work place. It is 'Don't Just Manage, Lead!' by Arthur F. Coombs III, also known as Art Coombs. Art talks about the differences between management and leadership. Like for starters, when a manager wants something to get done or a specific goal accomplished, they focus on the who, where, when, and how. A leader however, focuses on the why. A leader says 'When you tell people your why, and focus on the people and the human connection, they`ll figure out the rest. Leaders inspire those around them'.

The second recommendation she has is for the reader who likes a good, clean romance. It is 'Lakeshire Park,' by Megan Walker. 'Lakeshire Park' takes place in 1820 and follows the Moore sisters in Regency England. With no living parents, the oldest sister Amelia tries to secure happiness for her younger sister Clara, and she's willing to sacrifice and do anything for her.

Melissa's final recommendation is for children, starting at about eight years old. It is the 'Potion Masters' trilogy by Frank L. Cole. This is a fantasy, magic book series staring a 12-year-old boy named Gordy, who's mom is one of the world's most powerful potion masters, though most of the world doesn't know such people exist. Gordy is a natural Elixirist himself, and soon ends up in the middle of crazy adventures where he has to use his potion skills to save his friends, his family, and maybe even the world.
