I got serious about reading a few years ago. Before that I don’t think I ever read a book cover to cover.
Even in high school I resisted reading because it wasn’t something I enjoyed. My mind tends to wonder when I read so I don’t remember what I’m reading.
I’ve gotten better at staying focused on what I read but it still needs to be something I’m interested in at the time.
It also helps when I take notes about what I’m reading and write about what it means to me.
Recently I’ve started buying my books on kindle so I can have them with me wherever I go. This has been one of the best things I’ve done to keep me reading.
I can carry an unlimited number of books with me and choose what I want to read when I have some down time.
I like to read different types of books depending on where I am or what time of day it is.
During my morning routine I typically read self-help type books. How to learn a new skill, how to be a better leader, how to be a better person and so on. Even books about how to run my business and how to stack cash.
At bed time I like to read about people. Biographies, auto-biographies, stories of hero’s, adventure or fiction. I read about people who did great things.
Books have brought mentors to me and supplied me with knowledge that I would not have been able to acquire.
Here’s a list of what I’ve been feeding my mind. It explains a lot about the decisions I make and how I think.

When I read I like to have some soft jazz in the background and this is one of the channels I listen to on Spotify.
Here’s a tip…if you are an Amazon Prime member there are many books you can borrow for free!
