Why Create a Page About Good Books to Read Now?

I confess I’m a bit of a book collector. Especially books pertaining to marketing, selling, and the new technologies related to those subjects. 

Books about our human condition, motivation, and biographies interest me, too. In today’s on-the-move, Google search-driven world, sometimes reading books gets pushed aside. You think, “I’m too busy to read. I’ve got too much to do and reading takes too much time.”

Does it? If you think about it, reading is still the best way to learn, well, almost anything. Don’t get me wrong, action is required. And what’s great is that reading is an action. Discovering good books to read now can be a great first step toward enacting change in your life and work.

What If Reading Became Part of Your “Routine?”

Finding the time for good books to read now can be overwhelming. What I mean is, there are so many choices. Infinite, really.

Where do you start? You remember the old story of how you eat an elephant, right? You know the answer: One bite at a time.

Who knows, reading good books might become your go-to method for staying motivated!

How Might You Make Reading Part of Your Daily Life?

Thinking about the elephant story above, the same is true for making reading part of your daily routine. To begin becoming a “reader,” first examine your routine. Next, look for places in your day where you might spare a few minutes to read.

These blocks of time don’t have to be long. In my experience, if I set aside 15 minutes and keep the book handy, before I know it I’m done with the book.

Having your own list of good books to read now helps a lot, too. That way you can set a goal of reading X books per year, create the list, and get started.

Another way to think about reading is with Audible books. I’m a morning jogger, so I always listen to a book while I’m running instead of music. This isn’t for everyone, I know, but it works for me and maybe it will for you, too?

Recently, I listened to an interesting book called “Personality Isn’t Permanent” by Benjamin Hardy (Affiliate Link). My key takeaway from this book is that people CAN change. In fact, we do change. Sometimes whether we like it or not.

In Conclusion

Recommending good books to read now is fun. What books are you reading now? Why not put a comment below and share what you are reading, what made you choose it, and why you like it?

Good luck and good marketing and selling and good reading! 

Audio or Visual - These are Good Books to Read Now

We live in a wonderful time where you can learn anything you want by reading a book. While that's always been true, it's easier now more than ever to pick a subject that interests you and dive into it.

If you're at all like me, sometimes fitting reading into your day can be hard. That's why I love Audible!

I'm a morning jogger, so I listen to books when chugging along the paths of Eden Praire, Minnesota. Sometimes, when I tell people I do that, I get funny looks.

And many people say, "I can't listen to stuff like that when I exercise. I gotta hear music to pump me up!" To each her own, but don't knock it till you try it.

In this section, I write about books that I listen to or read (Yes, I do actually read books, too! 😀). Please comment on the book if you've read it and let us know your most important takeaway and how you believe it might be helping you.
