What Are You Reading Right Now?

Remember as a kid when your Mom and Dad would harp on you for not reading enough?  Turns out, they were onto something.  Laura Schocker’s article in the Huffington Post provides some solid evidence as to why we should spend more time immersed in books.  It’s worth a look.

This year, I challenged myself to read 52 books.  That’s about 47 more books/year than I’m used to (go big they said..).  I’m behind the eight ball already but no matter, lots of year left.  By way of this article I’m now accountable, so here’s what I’ve read so far in 2018, and I’d love to know what’s on your nightstand right now.  Recommendations welcome!

Completed list:

Profit First, Mike Michalowicz – a different take on business accounting.
The One Thing, Gary Keller & Jay Papasan – great book, and a wakeup call for many who struggle with doing too much.
A Newfoundlander in Canada:  Always Going Somewhere, Always, Alan Doyle – easy read about a musician’s working travels across the country.
Expert Secrets, Russell Brunson – an interesting “how-to” look at online marketing.
The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway – impulse purchase at an old book store.  First Hemingway book I’ve read.  The man could write.
The Hard Thing About Hard Things – Ben Horowitz.  Straight talk from a successful entrepreneur.
Crush It!, Gary Vaynerchuk – thought provoking business talk from someone who lives it.

Next Up:  We’ll All Be Burnt In Our Beds Some Night – Joel Thomas Hynes

  1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R Covey

    Hands down a huge eye opener for me!

    I’ve also completed Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie

    1. Great classics, Jeanette! Thanks for sharing. I remember reading 7 Habits and feeling the same way. Found it a bit dry at times, but was 100% worth reading.
