I love to read and always have, but in college I lost my desire for novels, self-help books and poetry filled-pages. I am about 1 year post grad and have decided to force myself to get back to doing more reading. I started with Finances in Your 20s for Dummies and The Wait. Both books offer practical ways to discipline yourself, but of course the topics vary.
Finances in Your 20s for Dummies
I was really impressed with this book for a number of reasons, but the main one being how organized the author was with separating topics. The book talks about everything money related from insurance to taxes to renting a house to buying a car. If you're not sure what to do with your money post grad then you should read this book for sure!
I am still reading the The Wait, but my biggest takeaway so far has been to look at sex the way God does. I recently decided to begin my journey of celibacy and The Wait has been a blessing. It gives practical tips for ways to avoid sex before marriage without making you feel like crap for having sex before. It also always redirects us to realizing that God has a purpose for making us wait and it isn't to keep satisfaction from us. Check it out and let me know what you think!
I'm not too fond of reading long-form writing online. I'm a sucker for a paper copy of a book. What about you? Do you like to read? Do you prefer e-books or paper copies? How do you consume written information best? Leave your comments below!
