People have been asking me for awhile to post up which books to read, etc - so as I'm tired of having to do this same thing over and over again, today's post is simply going to be me going through my pile of books in no particular order and slowly but surely converting the lot of them into a list, and eventually links to amazon so you can all purchase the same crazy list and know what I know.
For those of you who know me, I read about a book a week (give or take when I feel lazy, or when I feel like reading). Funny how I never did this during school, but now that I'm on a quest for knowledge and how to make other people succeed around me, I've been rampaging through tons of books as of late. Viktor Lasmarias, wherever you are - thanks for that CD that was like coles notes on steroids... seriously - a life saver when you had as many crazy honours courses as we did back in the good ol' days of Alpha Secondary.
Also - for those that are too lazy for Earl's crazy reading pace - take a look at Rapid Reader (just google it for now - too lazy for hyperlinking). I can't remember exactly when my dad forced me to read my first speed reading book, butnow I'm eternally grateful since that seems to be where I spend a lot of my time these days.
P.S. No, I don't lend out books - just buy the damn things and start building your library. What I would love though would be a wonderful book scanning service if anyone knew of any. That way I can back up my collection against floods and damage, etc.
Anyhoo, here goes nothing...
Thanks for reading, Earl Flormata -=-
