My current reading list

Had a few of you asking what I'm reading right now and suggesting new reading material.  Figured more of you might be curious, so here's my current list.  Who knows, maybe if enough people care I'll actually keep this up to date…

I usually have a few books going at a time, one or two loaded in my phone (audiobook for walking/jogging/commute, ebook for downtime) and a physical one for when I'm home.  I read for both pleasure & personal development so you'll see a mix of both here.

Full disclosure – this article contains Amazon affiliate links, meaning I get a little bit of money if you buy using that link.  Why do I use them?  Because Amazon makes it easy for you to see additional reviews, download to your kindle or phone, and makes me a few bucks to cover the cost of running this website.  Might as well get paid if I'm going to write the article, right?

I use the Nulaxy Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter Radio Adapter Car Kit with 1.44 Inch Display and USB Car Charger for playing books and hands-free calling on my phone in my car.  I highly recommend it, just plug it in and go.  One button to click to pause and start your book which makes it really easy to continue where you left off.  Very handy gadget if you enjoy listening to audiobooks.

I've read more or less constantly for more than 35 years, reading thousands if not tens of thousands of books.  If you're interested in a book recommendation subscribe and I'll send a recap of the articles I have written each week, a recommended book to challenge and grow you each month, and a list of the top 20 books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
