wondering what books (on tablet or not) or for that matter blogs... are you reading right now?

i have yet to start reading books on my ipad and recommendations from my fellow entrepreneurs sounds inviting!

feel free to share non-business stuff too.......... though i know some of us are addicted! oh.. i mean "passionate."

thanks,
nicole

    Some great ones are the now habit, physcocybernetics and obviously the four hour work week. Two great internet marketing blogs to go through are Kim Roach and Lee Mcintyre.

      Physcocybernetics is hands down the best book I ever read. Currently reading Nikola Tesla Autobiography and Lucid Dreaming

    I gave up reading books years ago, now I just listen to audio books, great when walking, driving etc.

        Is this the book by Maxwell Maltz? If so shouldn't it be two words?

        If not I can't find it on Amazon.

    Doesn't anybody around here read fiction?

    One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez; won the Nobel Prize for Literature in '82.
    Literary fiction is not my bag, and this book isn't helping with that, however one should step out of one's comfort zone on a regular basis.

    I'm reading "scientific advertising" by Claude Hopkins for the 13th time at the moment, I'm also listening to "the slight edge" audio by Jeff Olsen. for the 3rd time. (this book is really powerful, highlighting the power of compounding and how little tasks completed every day can amass into big changes in your life further down the road... brilliant stuff)

    Among the list compiled by my collegian mastermind group compiled are:

    Jay Abraham, David Allen, Robert W. Bly, Peter Bowerman, Jack Canfield, Robert B. Cialdini, Jim Cockrum, Stephen Covey, M.J. DeMarco, T. Harv Eker, Scott C. Fox, Michel E. Gerber, Seth Godin, Chet Holmes, Ben Hunt, John Jantsch, Mark Jeffery, Colleen Jones, Kristopher B. Jones, Guy Kawasaki, Dan Kennedy, Dave Kerpen, Oren Klaff, John Kremer, Jay Conrad Levinson, Michael Masterson, Nick Morgan, David Ogilvy, Daniel H. Pink, Dan Poynter, Anthony Robbins, Kenneth Roman, Darren Rowse, David Meerman Scott, Paul J. Silvia, Mani S. Sivasibramanian (better known to us as DrMani), Robert Skrob, Michael Stelzner, Jim Sterne, Scott Stratten, Joseph Sugarman, Brian Tracy, Maria Veloso, Eric Drew Whitman, and Jon Wuebben.

    Actually, plug any of them into Amazon and you will find a treasure trove of outstanding books. My advice is to stick with a minimum of 4+ stars, no less than 25 reviews (actually read them, don't just accept the final tally), and a publication date no more than 3 threes old (preferably 2). Use your judgment on new releases that don't have many reviews, but not so much on those older than 3 years.

    Obviously, many of the other classics would have shown up on this list if there were business majors among the lot.
