As many of you know I am an avid reader and have a very large library of physical books as well as digital books in my collection.

I believe reading helps slow down your mind’s distractions and helps you build the discipline and willpower to stay focused on one particular task at a time especially in this day and age of more distractions.

I know reading may not be the fastest form or most entertaining way of learning for some people but in many ways for me it’s very therapeutic.

Each month I will be compiling a list of books I recommend that are new and some that are old that I am re-reading again.

There are many ways to read a book, and finishing one shouldn’t mean you never pick it up again. There is also nothing wrong with searching the table of contents for exactly what you need and only consuming that part of it.

There is no right or wrong way to read a book so I suggest doing whatever it is that works best for you.

Remember, the goal is to take action from what you learn in a book not get an award for reading everything word for word and then forgetting it.

Anyhow, here is my list for September 2019:
