One of my goals is to read/listen to a book a month. I’ve read some awesome books recently:
David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
Without Their Permission by Alexis Ohanian (founder of Reddit)
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.
Last week, I read a couple good blog posts about books that inspired this post. Two actually come from Tim Ferriss, one of my favorite authors. Tim wrote the Four Hour Workweek, the Four Hour Body, and the Four Hour Chef, all of which I highly recommend. From Tim’s blog last week:
You Are What You Read: 14 Thought Leaders Share Their Bookshelves (Teaser: Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In appeared on several bookshelves, check out the other common reads)
The Tim Ferriss Book Club Launches- Book #1: Vagabonding (this book by Rolf Potts is on my Top 5 list of favorite books I’ve ever read)
This was posted on the Inc.com Facebook page today: The Top 10 Motivational Books of All Time (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, How to Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie, and Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill rounded out the bottom 3 spots of the list which was surprising to me. Read the whole article to see the top books!)
And here is a cool blog post from the ZenHabits blog: Why I read (+ a dozen book recommendations) (a post about WHY and HOW to form a reading habit)
Have you read any good books lately? Leave a comment and let me know!
