With the onset of summer, rich people are preparing their lists of beach readings. And this year their Goyard bags are likely to be filled with books on innovation, technology and the Greek gods.

JP Morgan Private Bank on Tuesday announced its 23rd annual summer reading list, which has become a seasonal list of literary status symbols for the super-rich.

The bank, whose customers typically have $ 10 million or more, is sorting through hundreds of recommendations from journalism consultants and narrowing them down to 10 titles. The selection is based on “the timeliness, quality and global attractiveness of the firm’s global customer base”.

Of course, most super-rich people will be looking at their stock screens all summer. But in a book sense, they want to learn more about technology, the planet and the past.

“This year’s list covers locality and time and seeks to double-click on topics our consultants most often hear in their conversations with clients this year, including sustainability, leadership and business transformation, technological innovation, expanding cultural perspectives and charitable support for important global “, said Darin Oduye, Communications Director of JP Morgan Asset & Wealth Management.

The list also added a new technological twist this year – books in the metaworld. The JP Morgan Onyx Lounge in Decentraland will include a virtual library exhibition where visitors will be able to make an avatar, watch interviews with authors and respond to trivia with the help of the “owl scientist”.

The list, as always, is as diverse as the rich themselves. But it’s a useful barometer of titles and topics you’ll probably see this summer on the beaches of the Hampton, the Aspen Mountains, Colorado, and other elite hotspots. Here is a list through JP Morgan Private Bank:
