I figure we all may have a little extra time at home and at some point Netflix binging will get old. I gathered up a few of my quick and easy reads below. I really love entrepreneurship books, leadership books, mom books and home books. Are those even genres? I don't know, but I like my books like I like my TV, light and heartfelt. I haven't really gotten into any non-fiction because I'm quite sensible and really like to learn and collects facts when I read. I don't take life too seriously and I love to just be real (hence our tag line "REAL life, REAL design"). I love to learn and I love to be inspired so these books have been fun and easy reads. Let me know if you have read any of these!

Oh. how I love me some Emily Ley. Seriously, she has the minimalist thing down! If you've been around a while you know I'm passionate about family and minimizing the chaos. Saying "no" to make room for the most awe-inspiring "YES" is my jam. I'm also very practical so Emily speaks my language. These 3 books will all inspire you to focus on the important things and let go of everything else. Also, really great if you're looking to tidy up at home right now.

I mean anything with Gaines in it and I'm in. Now you add some business to that mix and I'm sold. I actually bought this book for my hubby because he reminds me a little of good ol' Chip. But, it ended up on my nightstand and I thought it was a great quick and easy read.

Ok, so I'm not even done with this one yet, but if you need a kick in the tushy this is it! I started this before I made some big business decisions and Lindsay really helped me put my big girl panties on. The exclamation point is not there on accident, just sayin'. ;)

Ok, I haven't even read this yet, haha. But, everyone tells me it's super good so I added it to my library. I REALLY wish I would have purchased it on audiobook, but I was so ambitious and thought I could get through it on our vacation to Costa Rica. I was wrong.

If you have been intrigued by the Enneagram test, this is the book for you. Really learned a lot about my personality and my husband's. It felt kinda like a handbook with quick lists and descriptions to refer back to over time.

Let me know what you think of this list! Have you read any of these? Any other recommendations? I would love to grow my Audible library! If you're not already on Audible it's really great if you're a busy body and like to multi-task. I find myself listening to Audible when I'm driving or cleaning the house. For a monthly fee you get book credits. You can also share a book with others and return books you aren't happy with! It's helped grow my love for "reading".

I love reading books and this habit of mine adopted by my daughter too. She is 15 years old and she loves reading books. She mostly likes magic, fantasy, fiction, adventure, and romance genre books. From a very young age, I instilled in her a habit and responsibility to buy books out of her own pocket money. She normally buys books online during Black Friday sale days at discounts or through coupons (i.e. black friday coupon codes) and I really like this nature of her that she knows the value of money. She gives her some books to charity also after reading.
