Book of Lists or Lists of Books?

By Tiffany Young

If you're here you probably already read a lot. But in case you need inspiration, there have been a lot of bloggers out there creating their book of lists that I thought I'd share. I was going to add my own personal books that I want to read in the coming months, but realized many were already on these lists and most of them I'll be writing about at some point anyway, so find a topic below and get reading!

Here is a list of books to start learning about everything from finances to relationships:
Build Your Own Classroom

One of my favorite blogs for some reason is "The Art of Manliness." No, I don't have an identity problem, but they write about interesting topics no one else does. Here is a post on why men should read poetry with some suggestions on where to start. The list is totally fine for women, too! (And maybe you can leave the book on the bedside table for your man to stumble upon.)
Be a Man, Read a Poem

And lastly, read a review before you read the book. This can be a time saver!

There are a lot more lists out there, but this should be a good start. I'll try to share more as they come up—especially a fiction section, since most of these involved nonfiction and self-help books mostly. Have a great weekend and happy book hunting!
