Reading

I know many people have lists and piles of books and things that they’d like to read.  I do too. But I’m not proud of it.  Reading things brings me joy. I want to do more of it and proactively take notes which I often find helps me keep engaged with my reading.

I don’t read fiction. Rarely have done.  I think the last fiction book I read was when I was pregnant with my eldest son.  He is now 13.  Most of my reading is around building skills, business, creativity and education.

So here I go.

Business related:

  • Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur by Derek Sivers – a great short read looking at business in a different (yet very down to earth) way.
  • E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber – A great book for entrepreneurs looking to understand where they should be and how to systemise their business for success.
  • Marketing: A Love Story: How to Matter to Your Customers by Bernadette Jiwa – I picked up this book because I wanted and felt the need to be reminded an re-inspired by good marketing.  This certainly did the trick.  Not necessarily new ideas, but it still felt refreshing to read and great to see things from another perspective.
