The Books On My Beside Table

Normal people stick to one book. 

I am however not the average normal person so my beside table is a dumping ground for the various books I am currently reading.

Each book has a different purpose and each will better a certain part of my life. Some are financial. Others are self help books. And then some are just marketing books.

If you're looking to expand your library, I've noted down every book on my beside table and a brief overview of what they're about and how they benefit my life. (I've also included links within the headings so you can grab them from Amazon in the quickest way possible - I know it's very tempting)

1. The Choose Yourself Guide To Wealth by James Altucher 
I've listened to a lot of James' podcasts, so when my boyfriend ordered some of his books I was quick to read one before he could.

This isn't your standard "get rich" guide.

It doesn't just focus on monetary wealth but instead focuses on spiritual, mental, physical and emotional wealth and the idea of how once these values are all aligned, then you will be truly wealthy and great things will happen.

I find it super easy to read and incredibly easy to understand and I've already started using some of his tips and tricks in my life.

2. Meatball Sundae by Seth Godin 
This is one of my marketing books that I fell in love with.

I've just recently finished it but absolutely loved the writing style and the content.

This is a great book for anyone looking to start up a business or better their current business as it gives out of the box tips and tricks that will really make you stand out.

3. Choose Yourself by James Altucher 
So James should be throughly impressed because I do have 2 of his books sitting on my beside.

This one I also recently finished as well.

This book is amazing.

It's definitely a self help book in a way and also a bit of a motivational kick ass book. It has similar themes to #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso in the sense that it includes some of James' personal journey and the hurdles he had to overcome.

I definitely found that I benefited in all aspects of my life through reading this and it also made me much happier.

James helped me find my Zen place and for that I will be forever grateful.

4. Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill 
This is an oldie but a goody. I loved reading this book for so many reasons and thats why it's still probably on my bedside table.

One word to describe it would be - enriching.

It teaches you so much about the power of your mind and your ability to will things to you.

A definite must read!

5. Untethered Soul by Michael A Singer 
This book is amazing if you're really into spirituality and trying to find balance and peace within your mind, soul & spirit.

It's also amazing if you're going through a tough point in your life and feel like you need to be more in control of yourself.

It's such an eye opener.

I just finished it this morning & I'm going to read it again because I know I'll pick up even more the second time read. And it's such an easy read too!

6. #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso 
I really wanted to add an ass kicking, female written motivational book to my collection.

So I did some research and came across this one.

#Girlboss is written by the owner of the major online boutique Nasty Gal and is a guide to how to change your life and basically go from "rags to riches".

I find it extremely empowering and motivational and find it helps me to get things done as Sophia definitely pushes you to be your best and shows you the rewards that can be reaped from doing so.

So if you're looking for more books to add to your collection that will benefit your life or just like snooping and seeing what books other people are reading then I hope this post benefited you!
