One of my favorite things to do on the weekends when I’m not out hiking or taking photographs is reading great books. These are a few inspirational must-reads that I think you’ll enjoy.
Quiet by Susan Cain is a fascinating read, especially if you are an introvert, or someone close to you is introverted. I first heard about Susan’s book through a speech she gave, which I share in my post Can Introverts Succeed as Leaders and Entreprenurs: YES! I myself am an introvert, and Susan is an inspiration to me and to many others who enjoy and thrive in the quiet.
The 4-Hour Workweek is a hugely popular book that has motivated many people to leave cubicle nation and start untemplate lifestyles. It teaches you how to become your own boss and travel the world, living more and working less.
