For those who are unfamiliar, TheBlaze’s Dallas studios are a constantly evolving workspace organized to serve as an open, collaborative, creative area for producing content.

Stated differently, they’re pretty cool.

One recent addition is the below chalkboard, which gives some insight into the collective consciousness of Glenn Beck and the rest of the Mercury Radio Arts and Blaze family.

As readers know, Glenn and many of our employees are avid readers.

One part of the chalkboard that reflects this is a designated area for book recommendations — both Glenn’s and those of other employees.

Below are five of the books that Glenn is reading, along with his commentary, all of which should make for some great summer reading.
