My Book list
People sometimes ask me for book recommendations, the books that I’m reading at the moment, and/or books that I have lined up to read in the near future. As a result, I decided to make a page with an easy link to my book list on Amazon. Those of you that have followed this blog for a long time will know that my book list has actually been public for a long time on this page, but I thought it would be better to make it more prominent. Besides, if anyone ever wants to get me a birthday or Christmas gift, well, just click the button below and you’ll know what to get me.
You can get most of these books in paperback, e-book, and audiobook version (hint: you can often get these books for free at your public library if you’re a member of it and via the Overdrive app). I’ll be updating my list and this page as I find new books to read.
Please note that you can filter the list by books that I haven’t bought yet (“unpurchased”) and those that I have bought/read already (“purchased”) by using the drop-down menu to the right of that page. Also, I recommend checking out Jordan Harbinger’s book list over at his website. I’ve followed him for years and I highly respect him.
