WashingtonExec Summer Reading List Series:
WashingtonExec asked area executives what books are on their summer reading list.
Kate Michael, President and Editor of the online lifestyle magazine K Street Kate, has always been a voracious reader — in fact, she took a platform of Literacy to Miss America when she competed, representing the District of Columbia, in 2007.

The President’s Club, by Nancy Gibbs, Michael Duffy
Gilded Age, by Clair McMillan
The RockStar is Seat 3A, by Jill Kargman
