When I was younger, I was too lazy to read books. I just scanned through books for pictures, for the sake of entertainment. Thankfully just a few years back, early 2013, as I gained more interest in business stuff, I also gained more interest in reading. Obviously, I’m not a natural bookworm; however, as my hunger for knowledge grew stronger, reading slowly became a pleasant habit. At first, it was hard keeping on track of my reading goals, but eventually I learned to embrace it that soon became a love affair – making me want not to miss or put down a good book. I got hooked on reading. On learning. On growing and becoming better. I always keep in mind what the master influencer Jim Rohn said, “If you want to have more, you have to become more. Success is not something you pursue. What you pursue will elude you; it can be like trying to chase butterflies. Success is something you attract by the person you become. For things to improve, you have to improve. For things to get better, you have to get better. For things to change, you have to change. When you change, everything changes for you.” Wow! Everything he said was spot on! Reading tremendously improved my life, and for me, one of the best investments I have are my books – physical books in both hardback and paperback. For some reasons, I’m not a fan of eBooks; I prefer listening to audiobooks, especially self-help audiobooks. Now, to help you get started on your reading goals, I’m sharing with you my book collections. Books posted here were the ones I’ve read cover to cover – books I highly recommend.

Born to Run
by Christopher McDougall
Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.
