I read some pretty fabulous books recently and couldn’t wait to share them with you. These are books I’ve been loving! I hope you are going to enjoy them as much as I did.
The Cheapskate Next Door
This book is probably incredibly interesting to anyone who is really into frugal living. If you are familiar with my YouTube channel then you know that I am a huge frugal living advocate. Jeff interviewed hundreds of so-called “cheapskates” and reveals their secrets to a happy and comfortable life. Although I am not a fan of the word “cheapskate”, I associate it with being well .. cheap, which is not what I strive for, I did really love the book.
The title of this books says it all. This book is all about “How the rigged economics of meat and dairy make you consume too much” and “How to eat better, live longer and spend smarter”. While I was aware of lots of the topics discussed in the book, I did learn a lot. If you are human, then this book is for you. Why? Because this is a topic that affects all of us.
The Year Of Less
This book isn’t as much about minimalism as it is about intentional living. It’s a memoir about Cat’s life, her struggles, her addictions and how she turned her life around. The Year of Less documents Cait’s life for a year during which she committed to a shopping ban. In the last chapter of the book, she shares her tips on how to start and complete a successful shopping ban of your own. I’ve since started a shopping ban of my own and her book was a huge inspiration!
Beyond the breath
This book gives you a complete overview and detailed description of vipassana meditation and its technique. It’s a wonderful book and I greatly enjoyed reading it. Of course, if you are new to vipassana meditation then my recommendation is to visit a 10-day vipassana course. While the book is a good starting point, the practice can only really be learned by attending a course.
The Art of Living
In this book, author and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how you can live more mindfully and experience freedom and happiness you desire. This book was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad that I got to read it. It’s a lovely book and I highly recommended to anyone interested in mindfulness.
This was it for books: Frugal Living, Meat, Minimalism & Vipassana.
