My Top 10 Favorite Books

I want to share my top ten favorite books with you! As you can see most of the books I read are inspirational and motivational. Finding time to read can be difficult especially when you have a busy life, so I choose to read books that teach me something new, inspire or motivate me. That’s just my entrepreneurial spirit. I’m like a sponge and love to learn.

Most of my reading time is at night just before I go to sleep. It helps me unwind and end my hectic day with good thoughts. Another place I read is at the doctor’s office while I’m waiting for my appointment.

I have found a treasure chest of gold nuggets in each of these top books and I thought I would share them with you. I added my affiliate links to help you find them. They’d make great gifts for loved ones or for yourself! Enjoy!!!
