    I read think and grow rich. It is a great book. I started trying to stop watching P because of that book.

    Currently I just finished the Discovery of Witches trilogy.
    I'm a nerd I know :)

    When I have the time I'll probably get into the thoughts of Marc Aurelius that I bought recently.

    "How to live on 24 hours a day" by Arnold Bennett. I'm trying this out. It's a 1910 book on making the most of time outside of work. Got it off the Gutenberg project.

    Just finished another Gutenberg project book titled "the children of Odin" by Padaric Colum

    Yeah man, it's a super quick read. It's written with a great sense of humor, and since it's over 100 years old, and addressing early problems with emerging white collar work routines, it comes with benefit of 20:20 hindsight . you sort of can see what really would work timelessly for addressing life direction.

    Plus you can't beat that it's free. Thank you project Gutenberg !

    A new earth by Eckhart Tolle. It is a good book where you can learn more about your ego and how you can control your emotions.

    The Dark Tower VII by Stephen King.

    I do like Mr. King's works, and I've been struggling to finish his Dark Tower series. My PMO addiction set me back a lot (I started the first book in the series in 2013). Once I'm finished with The Dark Tower series I'm moving on to a good ol' Travis McGee novel by John D. Macdonald.

    I have a passion for books and fiction. I'm rekindling that passion in the hopes that it'll help me curb my PMO habits.

    Great book. Orwell was one of the most important writers of the last century. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

    The Power of Now! I have read it probably 5 times and it never gets old!
    Now it is- Tulku Urguyen, if you love Eckart Tolle and need something more.
    Think and Grow Rich- A must read!
    I have read both the Slight Edge and the Compound effect. Of the two I would recommend The Compound Effect because it explain more or less the same thing in a better way.
    One thousand and one nights. Contains tons of wisdom trough 5432 pages.
    The Phrophet. One of the most beautifully written books I have ever read.
