Books

The following is my reading list. This is based off memory so I am probably missing some. Lately, I have been adding to this page as I finish books though.

I have compiled a reading list of over 1000+ books that I have decided to get through. I will add them to the “Finished Reading” list below as I go through them. I would say they are a compilation of over 100+ reading lists from Warren Buffett and Bill Gates’ reading lists to Top 10 or Top 20 Reading Lists. The topics range from business, success, economics, investing, money, finance, self-success, self-help, fitness, health, self-improvement, biographies (of all sorts of amazing people from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Warren Buffett to Steve Jobs to Gene Simmons to name a few), psychology, happiness, and marriage/love. Many have tremendously impacted and helped many successful people make their way in life. One giant chunk of my list is on what you would label as “How to Get Rich” books. But not in the traditional “get rich quick scam artist” sense. Reading these will not immediately make you rich or guarantee it. What I have found (and you should understand that the ones that get on my list go through a large filter of my own making to make sure they are legitimate, relevant, reputable, and authored by amazing people) is that the ones I pick up end up giving you a hard, cold truth that it is not easy but this is what you can do and these are the mindsets you can have and these are the misconceptions poor people have and so on. But I will save the details for my reviews, which I will be doing in video format on my Youtube channel. The ones I pick up are usually either bestsellers, very popular, highly recommended from a lot of reputable sources, and/or authored by very reputable people. T

A good portion of my “To Be Read” reading list can be seen on my Amazon Wish List. Feel free to buy a book for me because it will help me grow and learn and I can teach you about it in my book review channel. I prefer audiobook but do not mind print. The rest of my reading list (which is larger than my Amazon Wish List… which already has 1000+ books on it) is on paper somewhere, saved, accessible somehow, or already bought. Leave a comment if you have any questions.

Some books are just not worth reading fully. A lot of the book may just be hundreds of pages of fluff that waste your time to read and were made just to make the book thicker so it can be published.

Do NOT read the books I read in the order they are presented. They are presented in the chronological order I read them and some of them turned out to be horrible books and should be skipped. I will make a blog post and/or Youtube video on the Best Books I suggest you should read based on your goals in life.

Books I have read partially: 

Some books have a lot of filler content because the publisher wants the book to look bigger or the author just wants to add fluff so the book isn’t 10 pages long. I sometimes only read part of books because there are only parts of it that are useful or interesting to me (and this is not necessarily because the book is bad or has fluff). Here’s the list.

1. I could do anything if I only knew what it was

2. What color is your parachute?

3. I will teach you how to be rich

4. That idiot’s rich and I’m not?

5. The Millionaire Messenger

6. Money: Master the Game by Anthoyn Robbins

7. 40 Chances

8. The Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard

9. Now, Discover Your Strengths

10. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

11. I graduated .. now what?

12. The Snowball

13. How to travel for free (or pretty damn near it)

14. How to get Rich by Felix Dennis

15. The Narrow Road by Felix Dennis

Fiction:

1. Harry Potter Series (7 books)

2. Bartimaeus Sequence (first 3 books)

3. Inheritance Sequence (first 3 books)

4. A couple books in this mouse series (forgot what it’s called)

5. Series of Unfortunate Events Series

6. DaVinci code by Dan Brown

7. Quite a few books that are tales of the mice/rats with human traits that carry swords and fight and have castles. It was quite good.

8. Another series that was pretty damn good that should be made into a movie. Forgot what it was called but it was like “the Merlin series”. It is about the childhood of Merlin the wizard

9. The Alchemist (good book recommended by Will Smith. One of the most sold books of all time)

Thinking of more I can’t remember… Will come back
