I spent so much time reading and studying for exams for the first quarter of my life, that I didn’t do a whole lot of reading for fun.
Now that I’m a better with my time management, and see the importance of reading every day, I can’t wait to decide what to read next!
I prefer to select books that further my education, personal development, or inspire and motivate me.
I think everyone should spend at least 10 minutes a day reading a personal development book of some kind.
I started doing this after reading The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, which is an excellent place to start if you are looking for some serious life motivation.
Since my main goal, in this season of life, is getting out of debt, I’ve been burying my nose in to some inspiring personal finance books.

I usually listen to the Dave Ramsey Podcast, but lately I’ve been listening to books on Audible.
I love listening to audio books because I can multitask with my driving time and still hit my “reading” goals.
You can get two free audiobooks on Audible and a 30 day free trial here.
