current reads

since i was younger i liked books; however, as i’ve gotten older i’ve kinda fallen off from reading because i’ve become engulfed in social media (but also school took over my life, work, extra curricular activities… ya know the usual), but lately i’ve been getting back into the swing of things.

the alchemist by paulo coelho

i have read this on my personal time, but currently i am taking a break from it; however, this book is so good. there are so many good nuggets of information throughout this book (or what i’ve read so far).

the only reason i have not finished reading this book is because i want the real book. i have read my books on my phone through ibooks and the feeling of having a real book in your hand versus your phone is so much better. i like to be able to feel the pages and hold the book.

from what i have read so far i know this is a book i want to have in my possession and highlight key information with an actual highlighter, i have to be able to take notes in it if i feel it.

i should’ve added this book into my wish list post. there are book stores here in costa rica and i would have gotten the book by now if they had it in english here. this book is every grocery store, i kid you not.

i’ve seen so many people say this book was good and it peaked my curiosity.

SYNOPSIS OF THE ALCHEMIST FROM BARNES AND NOBLE

Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

think and grow rich by napoleon hill

this has been the book my family and i have focused on in our “family book club.” so far i’m kind of enjoying it, hill definitely changes the way you think about the things you’re doing in your everyday life so that you can think rich and grow rich.

if you’re wondering why money isn’t flowing into your life the way you want it to, i think this might be the book you need to answer your questions; however, there is so much more to it get out of it than that, but you’ll have to read it to really get the full experience.

SYNOPSIS OF THINK AND GROW RICH FROM BARNES AND NOBLE

In the original Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937, Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles. In the updated version, Arthur R. Pell, Ph.D., a nationally known author, lecturer, and consultant in human resources management and an expert in applying Hill’s thought, deftly interweaves anecdotes of how contemporary millionaires and billionaires, such as Bill Gates, Mary Kay Ash, Dave Thomas, and Sir John Templeton, achieved their wealth. Outmoded or arcane terminology and examples are faithfully refreshed to preclude any stumbling blocks to a new generation of readers.

*note: i have not finished reading these books so i cannot give a full review but so far they prove to be very interesting and change the way you think and look at life.
