My Reading List

Below is a list of books that I have read (In Bold) or am on my way to reading in the near future. I have read great reviews for the majority of these books and have been recommend  most of them from friends and good acquaintances, thus adding them to my list with high interest to go through each and every book. I also recommend creating your own reading list and taking a few minutes out of each and every day to sit down and at least read 10 to 20 pages of a book. If it really is “too hard” to sit down and read a few pages then I suggest going to your local library and getting an audiobook that you can listen to on your computer or in the car. Our brains are just like computer hard drives and the only way we can store information is by first making the effort to obtain it. Therefore whether you choose to read a few pages a day or listen to an audiobook throughout the week, you are taking charge of wanting to better yourself through self driven education.

My reading list is currently growing and will have more books be added to it every few weeks. I am open to any and all suggestions on what books to add to my list as well as authors to consider looking into. I hope you enjoy my reading selection below and you can find the majority of these books at your local library as well as more than half of these books are available on audiobook! (Books marked with a *** means I highly recommend the book).
