Shelfie is the new selfie. Welcome to the Shelfie Club! Connect with us on Instagram by using #ShelfieClub. We’re just trying to keep it real instead of encouraging too many selfie highlight reels. It’s as simple as that for now. Below are a few books we’re reading and ones we’ve recently read:

Want to know what my podcast guests like Tony Robbins, Mark Cuban, Arianna Huffington & other are reading? Go here, click on their photo & scroll down. I’ve listed & linked.

  • Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer (This was recommended to me several times. Currently listening on audio. Finding it enlightening.)
  • Ask More by Frank Sesno (The power of questions to open doors. Started this to become a better podcast interviewer and quickly realized it’s for all areas of life.)
  • Essentialism by Greg McKeown (Tangible, tactical, potentially life-changing concept. Loved it. Reading it again now.)
  • The One Thing by Gary Keller (Quick read. 1/2 way through now, pretty good for those of us who suffer from Shiny Object Syndrome)
  • Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance (Memoir. Lends insight on the Rust Belt in America. Timely and valuable POV.)
  • Opening Belle by Maureen Sherry (Absolutely LOVED this. Based on true story. Badass Maureen was on my podcast. Her book is becoming a movie made by Reese Witherspoon.)
  • Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday (So good! I needed this. Great ‘check yo self’ book. Audio version is thumbs up.)
  • Together is Better by Simon Sinek (For all ages. Great gift. Short and sweet. Packed with gems.)
  • Settle For More by Megyn Kelly (Megyn is real, raw and vulnerable which makes her powerful. She does a solid job of transcending biases while shedding light on her “Year of Trump”)
  • Originals by Adam Grant (When you’re needing some creative inspiration for business.)
  • On Writing by Stephen King (Loved this and I’m not a typical S. King fan. He’s quite funny.)
  • Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson (I dabble in this thanks to Tim Ferriss raving about the read. Interesting POV from Benny.)
  • When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (Quick & emotional. Great holiday read.)
  • The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer
  • The Cyber Effect by Mary Aiken, PhD (CSI: Cyber was created from Mary’s story. Good for parents who wonder how tech is impacting kids.)
  • Law of Attraction by Esther Hicks & Jerry Hicks (Staple! Oldie but goodie. I look past some of the fluff.)
  • Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
  • Me Before You & Me After You by Jojo Moyes (Quick relaxing fiction. Took me awhile to get into this one but then hooked. Movie was great too. I liked the Me Before You better than Me After You book.)
  • Girl on the Train by Paula Hawki (A curl up on the sofa or read during a rainy weekend book. Page-turner. Movie is out too.)
  • My Life On The Road by Gloria Steinem (Inspiring and eye-opening to Gloria’s journey.)
  • Bird by bird by Anne Lamott (So good for writers.)
And if you’re in a Renegade mood, there’s always this read (wink). (Reviews here.)
