How to use the Discussion Forum and Comment Wall

For the best experience in this group, take a look at this video from Kent Julian of the Write It Forward Group. If we all heed this advice, we'll have more cohesive conversations about each book or topic.

Thanks!

Quick reminder-if you send a blank email to:
Reading@48days.com you will receive an auto response containing a link to Dan's reading list.

Another dynamite resource is Glenn Beck's Book list. Little less on the self help side and more aimed towards history and current events.

One of my goals for 2014 is to read 50 books. That's one a week, which sounds like a lot but I am a professional truck driver and have the advantage of being able to listen to Audiobooks frequently.

Currently I am reading "How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci" by Gelb. For the year so far I have also read/listened to:

Shop Class as Soulcraft
Wake Up and Live by Dorothea Brand
No More Mondays... By some guy we all know

How many of you have perused Dan's recommended reading list? Between his list and Dave Ramsey's list there is enough knowledge to give anyone an enormous boost.

Read on!

Just finished reading Andy Andrews book "The Travellers Gift".  Great book.  Good leadership and success principles.

I'm on page 95 of "Ender's Game", a science fiction hit, in my opinion. I'm also re-reading "Time management for unmanageable people"--a book written for more right brained thinkers.

I love to stop by here and pick up ideas my next book to read.  I just completed How To Live on 24 Hours a Day by Arnold Bennett.  I'm a time management fanatic so this provided a good kick in the pants.  This is an old book in the Public Domain, a short easy read.  I downloaded the audio on Librivox.  If you are not familiar with Librivox this is a project to transform all the books in the public domain into audio.  Lots of good stuff out there!

I'm reading Jeff Olson's e-book (after listening to the abridged version on CD) "THE SLIGHT EDGE." Every decision we make is a slight edge decision, for good or ill/bad. Ex. If I choose to do the uncomfortable of jogging today, instead of no exercise, I have made a slight edge decision for good. Tomorrow, if I choose not to exercise I have made a slight edge decision for ill/bad.

I'm going to reread The magic of thinking big again.
Comment by Mary Lawson on October 8, 2012 at 9:07pm

Is anyone going to re-read a book from their 2012 list before the year is over?  I will read the Travelers Gift  again before the end of 2012.

Good question Doug!

Comment by DOUGLAS COLLIER on October 4, 2012 at 4:43pm

I often like to see personal development techniques in books that are...well, a little off the beaten path.  Don't get me wrong: I like Dale Carnegie as much as the next guy.  But I can only take so much Dale Carnegie.  I think we can learn these life lessons from a variety of literary genres - for me, most recently re-reading my all-time favorite novel, David Copperfield by Charles Dickens.  I wonder if others have learned many different lessons in development, personal finance, and other areas from even the most unexpected of genres.
