I am reading Smart, Faster, Better by Charles Duhigg. There are many good points and will write a post when I have completed the book on how it has impacted me.

I make time every day to read.  I like to go back and reread books from years ago to see if I can get a different take on it. 

One I just re-enjoyed is You, Inc. The Art of Selling Yourself.

Just started Execution, the discipline of getting things done by Larry Bossidy, looks like it could be a good one.

Just finished Heads in Beds, by Jacob Tomsky, less inspiring but certainly interesting.

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie - timeless wisdom for business and non business. I read it about once a year. I have about 4 paperback copies in different locations easy to pick up and read anywhere. 

 

Reading right now: Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, Whatever Happened to Justice, Ancient Rome and how it Affects you Today, The Money Clipper, The 1000 Year War... libertarian slant more along the lines of Juris Naturale. My 13 year old son and I read these daily for homeschool political studies, economics, etc. 


Also reading as much of Thomas Jefferson as we can find in his own words. 

 

Reading the Scriptures daily as well.

I don't often read books to be inspired. I read books to relax and get out of my head and to escape. And I never listen to books or read them in any format except a book held in my hands.

I just started on Epictetus, the Discourses (thanks to a quote by Lou Ludwig).

And for our weekly Bible study, I am studying and teaching the Gospel according to John.

I wish I had time to read books! When I do read, it is for pleasure only. I've learned to inspire myself and I don't need books to motivate me.
