The Ultimate Book Guide

The Ultimate Book Guide

I like to read two books at a time: one fun fiction book and one that’s knowledge-building. A few chapters of each grace my bedtime routine. I used to be a physical copy snob, but lately I’m hooked on my Kindle. I find it much more convenient, and it keeps my nightstand way less cluttered.

Skipping the “Oh, I’m just not a reader,” or “I just don’t have time,” is surprisingly simple. Swap 15-20 minutes of your daily scrolling time with getting lost in a book, and you’ll realize how easy it is to be a “reader.” Chances are, you’ll stumble upon a genre, author, or series that you love!
