Monthly reading updates are back!

I’m going to start sharing, every month, the books I am reading and loving and the ones that are most impacting my business, mindset and decision-making!

Last year I read 70+ books and in 2015 and 2016, I read over 100 each year.

And for those 3 years I have reported in on my reading every month, in a blog post. But I kinda accidentally stopped, in July of 2017. There was no real reason, I just kept forgetting to do the blog post! I polled y’all on Instagram (are you following me on Instagram? If not, go do it – you get to vote on everything from I talk about on the podcast to watch on my Netflix queue!) – and you said you wanted me to go back to sharing my weekly list and you preferred me to do in an audio/video format. So that’s what we’ll do – 1 podcast a month on BOOKS. You can find allllll of my other reading posts and what I’ve been reading for the last 3 years right here.

So today I’m not going to cover January’s books, I’m actually going to go back and catch up on my favorite books since July, the last time I wrote about it!

All of these books are under $20 and I highly recommend each one.

Do you have a book suggestions you think I should read? Come tell me on Facebook!

Do you like episodes like this where I cover a lot of books, or would you prefer me to go deeper into one book per episode, like I have with Slight Edge and How Emotions are Made? I’ll put up a poll on Instagram, so be sure you’re watching my Stories!

What I read

  • Tools of Titans by Tim Feriss – SUPER big compendium of advice from a million awesome people. I learned a lot and rededicated to some of my best habits.
  • Essential Oils Every Day, by Hope Gillerman –  my new fave book for creating essential oil routines!
  • More than This, by Patrick Ness – fun sci-fi thriller. I wanna read everything by this guy now.
  • Six Four, by Hideo Yokoyama – Japanese thriller, fun, but a really different pace than American novels.
  • Agent to the Stars, by John Scalzi – super funny, weird almost-not-sci fi. I love anything by John Scalzi
  • The End of All Things, by John Scalzi – much more nerdy sci fi than Agent to the Stars and great.

What I read

  • Hillbilly Elegy, by JD Vance – Oh man. This memoir really hit home. The author grew up just a few miles from where I did, but above that his home situation was similar to mine. The way he places it all in a social and historical context really helped me process it all in a new way. Basically, until I write my memoir you can read JD's and get a good view of my early life.
  • Vlog like a Boss by Amy Schmittauer – As I've scaled up my video production (and hired a producer/editor!) and am looking at marketing the comic book shop, I wanted to read a book that tells me exactly what to do. This is a good overview of what exactly to do.
  • Moonglow by Micheal Chabon – This novel has stuck with me even though it feels a bit slow at times. Very character-driven, with a plot that unfolds before you even know it's happening.
  • Jane Steele, by Lyndsay Faye – a fun retelling of my favorite book, Jane Eyre. If you're into the ninja nun assassin novels I read a few months ago, you'll like this.
  • The Vegetarian, by Han Kang – a super creepy novel.
