Introducing Reading List: My listing of recommended books

So – I have decided to dedicate a page to the books I thought were interesting/useful and that made a real impact for me.

Why, you ask? Why?? Well – no one asked me, but I feel like I have a blog and can exercise my freedom to add a page to it. No – seriously, though – I think that the benefit I got from these books was material enough that I should share it with folks that hit my blog.

I have fairly diverse interests, so you will see those reflected in the listing of books. For now there are primarily non-fiction books on there – but I will eventually extend the listing to include fiction as well.

Let me know what you think of the books on the list. I am genuinely interested. Oh – and also – please leave me a comment with which book you think I MUST read – one that made a profound impact on your life. If I read and subsequently list that book on my Reading List, I will credit you by name (and link to your website/blog as well).

P.S.: In case you missed it, here’s the link: Reading List.

The best books of 2014 (Goodreads)

Goodreads is a platform that lets you track what you (and your friends) are reading (or want to read). And rate books, comment on them, read other peoples’ thoughts, etc. Very valuable, in my opinion. They also have an iOS app which I use on my phone.

Well – they did a poll of their user base (readers) and came up with the list of the best books of 2014. Take a look and see how many of these you have read. May even give you some ideas about books you may want to read going forward.

What are some of your favorite books of 2014 (or ever)?
