Our Favorite Books in 2016

We’re avid readers at Craft Your Content. We have to be, it’s our job.

You’ve seen our stats below. We read over 250,000 words a month – and that’s just in client work. When it comes to our personal lives, well, we have no personal lives. Will you see us partying on New Year’s Eve? Probably not. We’ll likely be digging into another book on our never-ending list.

The 32 Most Important Books I’ve Read In My Life (So Far)

Updated 8/5/17

Earlier this week I shared with The Writing Rundown crew a basic schedule I adhere to that allows me to get in 3-5 hours of reading daily.

While attending yoga classes, meeting friends for meals and hanging out, writing for 2-3 hours…and running Craft Your Content. Needless to say, I like to get a lot of time out of my days, and only occasionally “waste time” to go on day-long Netflix binges during which I never change out of my jammie pants. But oh, believe me, there are days I go on day-long Netflix binges!

The whole message came about after a friend said to me “Your GoodReads account is like my aspirational reading.”Continue reading
