Books, books, books!

June 1, 2010

I recently heard that all leaders are voracious readers. I have always been a voracious reader, but today I was realizing how very many books I am reading at once!

I have books everywhere in the house and when I am at that particular spot, I read that particular book. In the living room, where I usually do my Memoir writing, I am reading Write Your Memoir, by Dr. Allan Hunter. Right next to that are Little Voice Mastery, by Blair Singer, and The Right to Write by Julia Cameron.

On those days when I allow myself the luxury of a hot bath, I usually take a book with me. I am currently working on The Confident Creative by Cat Bennett, and re-reading Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl.

Before I go to bed at night, I usually read a bit from Your Soul’s Plan by Robert Schwartz, Cleanse your Life Now by Badr Bakry, or one or another of the many inspirational books I leave near my bedside, such as Living the Wisdom of the Tao by Dr. Wayne Dyer, or The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity by Edwene Gaines.

In the bathroom, I have a copy of The Power of Infinite Love and Gratitude by Dr. Darren Weissman, which I am slowly working through, and greatly anticipating the sequel which awaits, Awakening the Secret Code of Your Mind.

For when I am on the go, I take Stepping Stones to Success, compiled by David Wright.

And I also run two book clubs – a wealth-building book club in which we are reading Three Feet From Gold by Greg Reid and Sharon Lechter, and an ancient celtic studies group in which we are currently reading Irish Fairy and Folk Tales by WB Yeats.

And my car is a listening library, as I make my way through one CD set or another while driving. I have listened to incredible works by Wayne Dyer, Kevin Trudeau, James Ray, Bob Proctor, Nicholas Tutora, Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightengale, The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino, and so much more.

You get the picture. I am a lifelong learner and yes, a voracious reader.

Books are amazing. Not only do I learn from the information presented, but I get to see the world from all of these different perspectives. This broadens my world-view. I also get to know the authors, because I see how they write, their tone, their inflection, and most importantly, what they care about, what is important to them.

As I continue to work on my own current book, I also appreciate all of the work that goes into presenting information in a way that folks can receive it, learn from it, apply it, and make it a part of them. What a way to give back. 🙂
