Books that changed my life: Part One

Brands + Business x Christine Moody*

Chris' library

I read at least one book per week—even more when I was researching for my master’s thesis! I prefer ‘real ones’ so I buy them from my local bricks-and-mortar bookstore Folio Books. I choose each book because I have seen the review in a magazine article, blog, or Facebook page. Seems I am pretty good at choosing books as I hear Folio Books often order additional copies for the bookshelves thanks to my selection.

I love books about successful people and successful business. This week’s ‘Top Ten’ books seem to have a common theme—overcoming diversity on the road to success. It is hard to reduce my list to a ‘top ten’—or ‘top 100!”— so here is part one of some of my favourites. I recommend these books for everyone’s bookshelf:

  1. Reinventing You by Dorie Clark
  2. Stop Not Till the Goal is Reached by Maha Sinnathamby
  3. Peak by Chip Conley
  4. Start with Why by Simon Sinek
  5. Forty, Fat, and Fired by Nigel Marsh
  6. Do Over by Jon Acuff
  7. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
    Book by Marie Kondo
  8. Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht
  9. Playing Big by Tara Mohr
  10. The First Mile by Scott D. Anthony

What are some books that have changed your life?

Next Sunday…part two of ‘top ten books’!
