There are a lot of things I can fill my head with, and very few amount to more than nothing. Instead, I came up with the reading list below. I’ve broken down my reading list into categories that I’m interested in. I’ve categorized them and ordered them based on the value I got from them.
If you are interested in making a reading list, here’s how I came up with mine. I know a few authors I really like, and I know a few categories of books I am interested in. So I trolled Amazon Books for a couple of hours looking for books with high, and many, ratings. I also looked at what “other customers looked at…” at the bottom of the amazon book page I was interested in, to see what others were reading. And that’s how I got my reading list.
NOTE: Clicking the book covers below will take you directly to Amazon.com where you purchase one if you would like.
