In addition to these people, I read every book from JK Rowling aka Robert Galbraith, from Neal Stephenson, and from Michael Connelly. These authors’ books are not free.

I have the kindle version (pirated) for many of these books. Just ask.

If there is a need, I can also list the non-fiction books that I enjoyed… Enjoyment is my main criteria in choosing books.

Unless you can repeat the words, you didn’t get it, you didn’t learn it, it is not useful…

If you never learn… then most likely you are a SKIMMER

Most people read, listen, watch, and don’t, can’t recall names, places, and the exact words in a book, and audio or a video.

Cut coupons. Check facebook, your email, chat, watch cat videos.

Cook every meal… instead of batches is one way many of my students spend their time, instead of reading. I, instead, buy enough to make 7 meals, I cook the food, and put it in sandwich or snack bags… more the snack bags, which are about one fist, so it’s the perfect size.

This means that I don’t cook every day. I always have 10 or so meals prepared in my freezer.
