As someone who slept their way through high school and parts of college, reading the assigned books was always an issue for me.
Matter-of-fact, when I first arrived at Shippensburg University, we were supposed to have read a book to discuss in groups during freshman orientation. When the professor expectedly called on me to answer a question about the book, I politely told him that I hadn't done the reading. Much to my surprise, the world did NOT end, which is why I'm able to tell you about the books that I have personally selected for myself to read since then.
Here are the books I've read since graduating:
- How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie
- Lies my Teacher Told Me
- The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America (also available in PDF for free)
- Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Isaacson
- Mein Kampf
- Wheels of Life
- Science of Breath and 14 Lessons in Yogi Philosophy by Yogi Ramacharaka
- Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins
- Patriots, by James Wesley Rawles
- You Are The Placebo: Making your Mind Matter by Dr. Joe Dispenza
- Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand
- Planets in Play: How to Reimagine Your Life Through the Language of Astrology, by Laurence Hillman
- Robes: A Book of Coming Changes, Penny Kelly
- Power and Innocence: A Search for the Sources of Violence, Rollo May
If you've read any of these books and would like to discuss them, please contact me! And if there are any books that I should be reading, I want to hear about them, too!
