Hello, friends! Do you remember these long-long lists of ‘must read’ books we were getting from our literature teachers before summer vacations? These ‘nuts’ were for real bookworms teeth.
My summer to read list not so giant, as it was in school, but much more effective. Well, I like to read books on self-development topic.
For this summer I choose 3 of them I haven’t read yet:
“The art of making deals” by Donald Trump.
“How to make big money in small business” by Jeffrey Fox.
“Where’s my cheese?” by Spencer Johnson. Can’t wait to read this book especially. Bunch of reviews says this little fairy tale changed the lives of many people. They are promising: after reading it you will never look at the world in the old way.
You might ask: Only 3 books? And that’s it? Well, someone can read 20 of such books per summer and nothing changes, any visible effect on his life. Because such kind of books are very special, and you need to learn how to read them in a proper way.
Usually people hungry for success begin to simply “swallow” the books on self-develppment topic one by one and brag on what they read later, because there is nothing else to brag about. I feel sorrow about them. The main thing is not how much books about success you read, but what is the efficiency of the book. Better to read 2 books instead of 20, but apply knowledge in practice. These type of books need slowly path of reading, it’s not novels, where you temped to figure out how it ends. The written should be considered and analyzed.
During the reading of the book, ask yourself a wide variety of questions. What can this advice give me?
What can I get?
How much does the author’s life look like mine?
And try to check everything in practice!!!!!!!!!
Read these books not for reading, but for transforming one’s personality. Ridiculous reading will take away only your time and will not allow you to approach success and freedom.
And some other books I am going to read just for fun:
Novels of Jane Austen – the perfect beach reading: for the decency in these books about love, the real passions are boiling. And most important for us the main thing – in the final is always a WEDDING.
Pelham Grenville Woodhouse “Jeeves and Worcester”. Model butler, obedient loafer, endless prudish aunts – in general, the best sample of English humor which I adore!
These books I am going to read in English. And one Russian book of my favourite detective writer: “Planet Water” by Boris Akunin is a new, albeit retrospective, story of the heroic handsome Fandorin . However, any book from this series can be re-read again and again – despite the fact that Erast inevitably gets older.
