Today (March 19, 2020) I did a LIVE Q&A Session on Instagram. One of the questions was for reading recommendations! So I wanted to share a list of some of the books I have physically (or in the Kindle app).

Some books are best viewed in person, but some carry into the digital format well. Some I have in both spaces. I put this together by category. Some of these I’m slowing going through. I get a little distracted when reading, so my tendency is to read 1-2 chapters, then focus on something else. I’m sure many of you will have more focus than I!

If you have additional suggestions or faves, please feel free to share them with me, I can add them!
