Monthly Reads

Happy Monday! November is here and so is my monthly reading list.

My commute to work is an hour each way so I have ample time to read. Last month I got through a few things, all of which I really enjoyed. Among them were:

A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy by William B. Irvine

This book provided a beginner’s look at Stoicism, a philosophy I deeply admire and try to live by. I highly recommend this book. It's one of Asher's favorites, but I still recommend reading Seneca's writings, particularly “On The Shortness of Life,” one of his most famous bits. Also reference the writings of Marcus Aurelius if this is your jam.

STYLED by Emily Henderson

A home decor coffee table book—beautiful to look at with lots of great practical tips and ideas. I'm in the nesting mood, and this book helped fuel inspiration. 

On the List this month:

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

I’m already well into this, but it’s a brilliant book commissioned by Andrew Carnegie. The title sounds meh, but the content is gold. Asher read it and loved it.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I love Neil Gaiman's books, and hear great things about this one.

A Beginning Guide to Investing by Ivy Bytes

I want to become more aware of investing lingo...so here I am. THRILLING. ;)

National Geographic & New York Book Review

I make it my mission to avoid fear-based news that remains anything but factual, but I got Asher a subscription to both of these publications for his birthday so I figure I should read them too since they're notably good ones. I’m hoping to get a better sense of what’s going on in the world from these two publications (environmentally, politically, etc etc.). 

Any reading recommendations? Would love to hear them. :) I love all different genres, particularly non-fiction, fantasy fiction, and historical fiction.
