Read more. Do more. Be more. It feels like an entrepreneur we have to do more and more. Hustle. Be constantly pushing… But: More is not always more. That’s what I believe. In some FB groups for entrepreneurs I’m part of, there are many conversations about reading. Reading a lot more. Some women even want to, and actually do read about 100 books per year. This sound like a good idea because leaders are avid readers. But more is not always more. I think it’s great to read a lot (I loooooove reading) but when I hear that the new trend is to read about 100 books per year I’m shaking my head. I don’t think you can fully immerse and get plus do what you learn in the books because you are already focused on the next book in your list. Instead of reading 100 new books (or 50) this year (and following the trend) I thought it makes more sense to use what I already have and re-read the books that I think are great. I’m sure I already forgot a lot of what I was learning from the books I own. As a smart person said:
“You have to read a book three times before you know it.” ― Sherman Alexie, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time IndianSo I wanted to share with you a list of great books to read in 2018. I already read them and I will read them again this year. Some of them are classics, some of them are pretty new and all of them are worth reading (once, twice or three times).
