I read
books. I have more than 140 books in my Amazon audible library. I have picked
some of the insightful ones which I think are worth reading. The advantage of
using Amazon Audible is that I can use my idle time at home or when travelling
to listen to these books. Some of these books I have listened to them more than
ten times.  Some of the books I have
listened to more than 10 times are; Naked Statistics by Charles Wheelan,  Thinking, fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman,
Boards that excel by Josephy White, The Winning Attitude by John C Maxwell, The
leadership Code by Dave Ulrich and Norm Smallwood, Start with Why by Simon
Sinek and Why CEOs fail by David L Dotlichi and Peter C Cairo.



This
booklist is a treasure. I have learnt bout leadership, analytics, managing
people, business development, performance management and coaching, innovation,
and presentation skills.  The good thing
about Amazon Audible is that once you buy the book and you use the Audible App,
the books are yours for life. Audible allows you to share your library with a
few limited friends and colleagues.  I
have a monthly subscription to Audible, 
I get roughly 3 free credits every month which I can use to buy any 3
books of my choice regardless of price. That is a big deal for me.  This is how I have managed to grow my Audible
library to more than 240 books to date. 
More important for those intending to build their libraries is that
audible books are reasonably priced, unlike other book formats. You can get a
book for as little as $2. There is no better bargain than that. Ejoy listening
to these books and build your library.
