I read 67 books in 2019. My goal was 52. I like reading one book a week.

These are my favorite.

On Writing by Steven King
I’m not a fan of his novels, too scary for me. But, his writing process I found very interesting and workable for me as I start to write more.

Writing Into The Dark by Dean Wesley Smith
I’m planning on starting my first fiction novel this year and I found this book on how a prolific writer uses a method of writing his books quickly …

Armada by Ernest Cline
Super fun Sci-Fi comedy novel with tons of 80’s pop references. Really enjoyable adventure. Would make an excellent movie.

Pancakes In Paris by Craig Carlson
Part travel essay book, part entrepreneur journey book. I loved his stories of how he got his restaurant running in Paris.

The Sweet Life In Paris by David Lebovitz
An American pastry chef story about making it big in Paris.

Love For Imperfect Things by Haemin Sunim
I loved how he wrote about how imperfect things are nice to have in your life.

Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer
Quite a good book.

Being Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh
I love every one of his books. This one the most.

In Praise Of Slowness by Carl Honore
This helped me embrace my new slow lifestyle after my seizure. I didn’t like not working for so long and really struggled with it. This book helps me realize that I was missing a lot of just simply enjoying life.

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I want to be mindful of being a feminist and I found this book really great to hear a woman’s perspective.

Getting Unstuck by Pema Chodron
She is simply awesome. Loved it.

Start Something That Matters by Blake MyCoskie
From the person that started Tom’s Shoes, he goes into detail about how starting a business that matters is awesome. Highly recommended.

He has made making good habits so easy to do. I’m still my habit chains based on his technique

Art Of Manipulation by Mark Panic
I’ve run into a few experts of dark psychology and when their techniques do not work on me they turn into big babies. This book has some good suggestions on how to handle them.
