I love to encourage my readers to take action towards building a career as a freelance writer, blogger, content creator, author or solopreneur - every single day. 31 books in a month sounds ambitious, but many of these are short, sharp, super focused books that can be read in a day. In fact some of them can be read in an hour. Some of them are longer and more involved, so you don't have to read them all this month, but see if you can set aside an hour every day for reading something from this list. Just don't let it take away from your writing time. I read when I've done my writing for the day and I'm too tired to do any more. I also read on my phone anywhere from the hairdressers to the supermarket checkout line.
What's more, some of these books just a few bucks, or even free, in ebook form, so if you really can ramp up your learning this month, without breaking the bank. Some of them are also available free via Kindle Unlimited subscription service. Click the image below to find out more about that.
Just one tip. Keep a notebook to hand. Make an action list as you go through each book. You’ll only benefit from them if you act on their advice. Happy reading.
