Is reading a passion of yours? Do you have a pile of books you haven't got round to reading yet? Well I'd like to add to that pile with recommendations for four more books for you to read if you haven't already...
1) Oversubscribed by Daniel Priestley
This was the first book recommended to me by business coach Robin Waite and I think anyone in business would benefit from reading it. The book reveals how to get people lining up to do business with you.
'Don't fight for customers, let them fight over you! Have you ever queued for a restaurant? Pre-ordered something months in advance? Fought for tickets that sell out in a day? Had a hairdresser with a six-month waiting list? There are people who don't chase clients; clients chase them. In a world of endless choices why does this happen? Why do people queue up? Why do they pay more? Why will they book months in advance? Why are these people and products in such high demand? And how can you get a slice of that action?' Successful entrepreneur and best selling author Daniel Priestley unfolds the answers to these questions and lots more in his highly acclaimed book.
2) The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
This book is a work of art. Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize in 1997 for it. My mum passed this on to me to read and I must admit it took me a few attempts to get rolling with it. It's a long book and the author writes with charm, humour, intensity and inventiveness.
The story is about the childhood experiences of fraternal twins whose lives are destroyed by the 'Love Laws' that lay down 'who should be loved, and how. And how much.'
Once you are captured this book will entwine with your soul and be a part of you for life.
3) The Million Dollar Blog by Natasha Courtenay-Smith
Everyone who reads has something to write about. If you read then having a blog is the fastest and easiest way to have your say. Whether you're in business or not, this book will guide you through everything you need to know about blogging. You'll be so keen after reading a few pages that you'll want to rush through the book and get started on your blog. I wouldn't have carried on my blog so enthusiastically without reading The Million Dollar Blog. I first saw it mentioned in Cheltenham MumBoss Club, so thank you for that, girls!
4) The New Health Rules by Frank Lipman and Daniella Claro
I spotted this New York Times Bestseller in Urban Outfitters in Bristol a few years ago and felt compelled to take it home with me (via the payment desk of course - I didn't just wander out of the shop with it). This is an interesting read and also good to keep on your shelf as a reference book. It's packed with tips and advice for your wellbeing, and that can only be a good thing.
