Books I Read In 2018

I set a goal to read 30 books last year, 10 more than the previous year. I felt like it’d be a challenge, but achievable.

Another goal I had for the year was to prioritize creation, and not just consumption - which reading is - so I tried not to make the number too ridiculous.

I read 29 non-fiction books and 1 fiction book. The non-fiction books were not purely consumed, but were all calls to action in their own way. As a result of these books, I tried a vegan diet, I gained confidence in my abilities as a small business owner, I became more open-minded to differing political and nutrition viewpoints, and I started working with a marketing coach - to name just a few tangible outcomes.

Warren Buffett says he spends about 80% of each day reading. When asked about his key to success, he replied, “Read five hundred pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.

This year I’m making my goal higher. ;-)
