During November, book bloggers dedicate the month to reading and talking about Nonfiction books. I’ve always wanted to participate, but haven’t taken the time to do it. During the month I’ll share my favorite nonfiction books, share recommendations, I’ll talk about how I read so many nonfiction books and not get bored, and tell you what nonfiction books I can’t wait to read. I absolutely love reading nonfiction and if I am remembering correctly, I read 50% fiction and 50% nonfiction last year!

This week’s theme is hosted by Katie at Doing Dewey

This week I’m choosing to Be the Expert on books to help with Time Management and Self-Improvement. This is a topic I love to read about and I seem to always gain a new tip from these types of books.

The following are all books I’ve read and kept on my shelf to refer back to time and time again when I’m stuck or need some inspiration to get something done.

I needed this book so badly when I purchased it. If you tend to say “Yes” when you shouldn’t, read this book!

I loved the real-life interviews in this book. This one is great for young moms, which is the time in my life when I read it.

So many AHA! moments came from this book. I think half of the book is highlighted.

Laura Vanderkam is THE expert on time management. I love everything she writes and talks about.

I really enjoy Emily Ley’s approach to living life at it’s best. I use her Simplified Planner daily and these two books grace my shelves and I open them frequently for reminders and inspirations. She actually has another new book that comes out on Tuesday, WHEN LESS BECOMES MORE. I’ve already pre-ordered it.

I’m sure there are other books I might be missing, but these are ones that hold a special place on my bookshelf for quick referral or rereading.

I hope you enjoy this list of books I recommend for Time Management and Self-Improvement. If you have a book to recommend in this category, please let me know in the comments.

    These look good. Now if I can just find the time to read them. 😉

    This looks like a great list of books. Self-help are always books that seem to improve me.

    I see you have Laura Vanderkam. I read Off The Clock and I Know How She Does it. Very interesting books. Good job.

    The kind of topic we can all relate to on some level or other – thanks for sharing your recommendations.

    I occasionally am just in the mood for some good self-help and I’ve kind of been craving a book in this genre lately. I’ll definitely use your list as a starting point!The only one I’ve read already is 168 Hours and I thought it was great 🙂
