Books I’ve read in 2021

Every year I read a bunch of books. This year won’t be any different but for once I’m actually going to keep a record of every book I read this year and I’m going to share them here with you.

I read a lot. For some time I’ve been making a note inside the book of the date when I start it and when it finish it. I’ll keep doing that but this year I’m also going to share a list of the books I read throughout the year.

Lets see how many I can get through in 2021.

*This will be updated each time I finish a book (or maybe even while I’m reading it but yeah, check in now and then to see what’s been added to the list.

Book #1 – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

This book had been on my “To Read List” for ages. I finally read it, I started it in December and finished it early in January. I can’t say the exact dates because I didn’t make note of them because this book was lent to me.

It was an enjoyable read and something I’d definitely recommend!!

Book #2 – Everything is F*cked: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

I started and finished this book in January. It was ok, but to be honest I didn’t enjoy it as much as I enjoyed The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. This book was also lent to me.

Will I buy it for myself? No I don’t think so. You may feel differently about it though so feel free to check it out.

Book #3 – The Business Book Of Coaching

I recently decided to change focus in my career. Instead of managing social media pages for businesses and instead of creating images and content for businesses I now currently only offer coaching.

I’m a strong believer that you can never know enough about anything and so I decided to read this book to pick up some extra info, tips or advice and I found it to be a really good book.

If you have been involved in coaching for some time you may not find it super helpful but as someone getting started in it, I thought it was a great book.

Book #4 – Fanatical Prospecting: The Ultimate Guide to Opening Sales Conversations and Filling the Pipeline by Leveraging Social Selling, Telephone, Email, Text, and Cold Calling

Now this was a great book. I got through it in a few days and found it extremely helpful. My biggest struggle around business is sales and especially the prospecting and cold calling side it things.

Of the books I searched for that I believed could help me with this struggle, this book stood out and I’m glad I read it. I’m definitely going to put what I learnt from this book into action.

I’m not a sales person but I think even if you are and even if you have been in sales for some time, this book will still be of value to you. Definitely a book I would recommend.

Book #5 – The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

Another awesome book. I personally didn’t know too much about Jeff Bezos or about Amazon and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

It’s not a brand new book and over the years there will have been more to add but to read about the early days of Amazon and the story up until 2013, this is a book that I would highly recommend.

Book #6 – Selling The Invisible: A Field Guide to Modern Marketing

An absolutely brilliant book that I would highly recommend to anyone who needs to market a service.

Marketing a product is very different compared to marketing a service. If you own a service based business and if you need to market your services then this is a must read.

The book is broken down into small, easy to read sections. I read this book relatively quickly and it’s a book that I can definitely see myself revisiting and rereading on a regular basis.
