“So many books, so little time.” – Frank Zappa
I thought that graduating high school and not going to a four-year college meant that I was over reading lists. Clearly, that is not the situation.
My list is longer than ever before and constantly growing. I think it has grown so much within the past year because I didn’t have the constraints of school on me anymore. No more schedule telling me what I had to read, when I had to read, and how long my paper had to be on the book that I merely skimmed over.
My reading list as of December 2019 includes:
- Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens
- How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
- I Will Teach you to be Rich – Ramit Sethi
- My Inventions – Nikola Tesla
- WITSEC series- Lisa Philips
- Traction – Gabriel Weinberg
- Art and The Bible – Francis Schaffer
- Digital Minimalism – Cal Newport
- Deep Work – Cal Newport
- That Will Never Work: The Birth of Netflix and the Amazing Life of an Idea – Marc Randolph
- Persuasion: Convincing others when facts don’t seem to matter – Lee Hartley Carter
- The Lessons of History – Will Durant
- Only the Paranoid Survive – Andrew Grove
- Reform Your Inner Mean Girl: 7 Steps to Stop Bullying Yourself and Start Loving Yourself – Christine Arylo and Amy Ahlers
- Good Strategy Bad Strategy – Richard P. Rumlet
- The Art of Possibility – Benjamin Zander and Rosamund Stone Zander
- Zero to One – Peter Thiel
- Niche Down – Christopher Lochhead
- The Hard Thing About Hard Things – Ben Horowitz
- The Inner Game of Tennis – Timothy Gallwey
- The Magic of Thinking Big – David Schwartz
I am all too aware that it will take me a long time to fully get through this list. Me adding new books to it weekly doesn’t help much either.
