Reading is something that I love to do! I enjoy all kinds of books. Hard cover, soft cover, Kindle Fire…it doesn’t matter just so I can get lost in the words. I have already finished a couple of books in February but here are the one’s that I finished last month. (January 2016)
1) “Do Over” by Jon Acuff
The subtitle of this book is: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck. Jon writes about relationships, skills, character and hustle. Best selling author, Seth Godin said, “This is the best career book ever written.” I wouldn’t go that far but you will need to keep a highlighter handy!
2) “If” by Mark Batterson
Mark is the pastor of National Community Church in Washington, DC. He is one of my favorite authors. I have all his books. I love his book “In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.” His new book “If” is about trading your if only regrets for God’s what if possibilities. The book is thought provoking and full of sermon illustrations.
3) “Start” by Jon Acuff
Yes, It was a Jon Acuff kind of month. This book shares how to punch fear in the face, escape average and do work that matters. Jon breaks our lives down into these five stages: Learning, Editing, Mastering, Harvesting and Guiding. in 2010 Jon joined the Dave Ramsey team but now is on his own as an author and speaker.
4) “Design Your Day” by Claire Diaz-Ortiz
This short read deals with being productive by setting better goals and living life on purpose. The writer tells how to set SMART goals and how to streamline your work. She shares how to create strategies to reach your goals.
5) “Quitter” by Jon Acuff
Told ya…third book by Acuff in January. I love the way Jon puts his thoughts in print. In this book he talks about how to close the gap between your day job and your dream job. (By the way…I have my dream job) Many people have a side hustle idea. This book helps you work toward making that a full time reality.
6) “The Comeback” by Louie Giglio
The subtitle of this book is: It’s not too late and you’re never too far. If you have ever been disappointed at where you are in life, or desire something different…something better, THAT is what Louie writes about…how to have a fresh start. He has the heart of a pastor yet communicates like your best friend.
7) “Bad Habits No More” by SJ Scott
I read this one on my Kindle Fire. It was only $2.99! The book shares 25 steps to break any bad habit and how to build powerful, positive routines. This guy has made a fortune writing these small practical books. He has a book on Evernote that I am going to pick up. (No wonder he has made a fortune…his books are like Lays potato chips…you can’t have just one)
Well that’s it. The seven books I read in January. Of course I also read Genesis, Exodus and Matthew.
I encourage you to pick up one of these books. Also, share your list with me. What did you red in January?
