By the title of this post, you already know I’ll be talking about reading…specifically, what’s on my reading list for 2020.
When was the last time you read a good book? For most, reading isn’t at the top of the hobby list. At least, for me, it wasn’t. I’ve now fallen in love with reading. Through reading, we expand our vocabulary. How many times have we heard our teachers and parents say that? A lot, I bet. Too many times! It’s the truth, though. Reading stimulates your mind, it can help with stress management, memory improvement and it certainly will improve your writing skills.
With the great advancements in technology, reading has become listening. It’s quite convenient to listen to your favorite authors while commuting to work, while waiting in the airport, while waiting for your appointment, etc. For that reason, audio books are great. It has its place. Books have also made their way to the screens of our cell phones, tablets and computers. This has proven to be equally convenient. However, it’s just not as satisfying for me. I’m a little old school where books are concerned. Getting a new book is magical…even if I have no idea when I’ll get a chance to actually read it. There’s nothing like turning the pages of a good book and physically marking where you’ve left off.
In 2018, I purposed in my heart to read a certain number of books in 2019. It’s the end of the year and I haven’t completed that list. Therefore, I’ve added them to my list for 2020.
Without further ado, here’s what my reading list for 2020 is looking like.
At the top of my reading list for 2020 are…
- The subtle art of not giving a f*ck: A counterintuitive approach to living a good life by Mark Manso
- Everything is f*cked: A book about by Mark Manson
Surprising? I know! I don’t curse and the f-bomb COMPLETELY goes against who I am and what I stand for. Nevertheless, the titles still intrigue me. I’m curious to see which direction Mr. Mason will go with these two books. Will I learn something? I hope so.
