Once again, I am sitting in the Barnes and Noble cafe trying to get a little work done while away from the “office” or my house rather. So I wanted to see what you guys had planned on your reading list for the winter season. Most people are going to be having the next week or so off from work if they are members of the corporate world, plus getting gifts from the holidays, you should have some new stuff to read. So what is it?
A coupon came across my email this morning for 30% off one item at B&N on top of the normal member discount, so I knew I needed to pick up something.
I had started reading Cameron Johnson’s book “You Call The Shots” and plan on finishing that over the next week (review to come following that). So far the book has been pretty good. From meeting Cameron in person and hearing his presentation to reading his book, his writing style is very similar to that of his presentation – very easy going, easy to follow, and interesting. I look forward to finishing the book up and seeing what kind of gems I can pull from it to share with you all.
The book I am picking up today is “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferris. I am sure many of you have already heard about the book or even read it, so I wont go into too much about it. The NY Times bestseller has been on my list of books to pick up since it came out. I tried my luck at winning one of the multiple copies that blogger John Chow was giving away as well as one by Dane at Business Opportunities Weblog. But now that I have a nice coupon, I’ll be able to get the 30% off plus the extra 30% off for being a member, so I’ll snatch the book for 60% off!
Besides these two, on my Christmas list was a book from Entrepreneur Press about starting your own eBay business. Although I have already started mine, I feel as though it may be beneficial to do some of the back reading about starting one, finding suppliers, keeping records, etc to help me excel even more and develop a better strategy for the business.
So, what is on your reading list? Have you already read one of these on mine – What did you think?
