I love reading. As a child (and I mean a *child*), I loved it because books can transport you to a world that you didn’t even know existed, with images painted in your mind by whatever meaning written between the words that you perceive. Tone, meaning, and the way a story unfolded past the words themselves depended on the picture you painted for yourself, and you could be anyone and do anything. Books were an escape from reality and you could pick a new place where you wanted to run to every single day. In 2nd grade, I read at a 4th grade reading level. I’m middle school, I was always finishing books the day they were assigned (much to the dismay of my teacher). In high school, I decided to read every book on the Barnes and Nobles classic literature list - a few hundred classic literature books, NBD. I scored 780/800 on my verbal SAT - the top 99th percentile - with basically no studying. • Now, I love reading because I think the fastest way to learn is to learn from someone else’s mistakes. Reading allows you to do just that. I always take books with me when I travel. • 📚📙📘 Here are the books I’m currently reading through the end of 2019: 📗📕📚 • 1️⃣ Principles by Ray Dalio 2️⃣ Hug Your Haters by Jay Baer 3️⃣ Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek 4️⃣ Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Noah Harari 5️⃣ AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Ballet and the New World Order by Kai-Fu Lee 6️⃣ The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander 7️⃣ The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek 8️⃣ Radical Candor by Kim Scott 9️⃣ Chaos Monkeys by Antonio Garcia Martinez 🔟 Know Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You’re Worth by Mika Brzezinski •••••• What’s on your reading list for Q4?
