My Daily Reading List

My Daily Reading List

I was recently reading ‘My Daily Reading List: An Update’ by Michael Hyatt which gave me the inspiration to share my own daily reading list. Using the format he offered in his post, here goes…

I don’t always have the time, but I love to read. My day includes reading through news, blogs, Google+, Twitter and my favorite books. All in all…I probably invest somewhere in the neighborhood of two hours a day reading.

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.

 -Harry S. Truman

I have a long but beautiful ride through the mountains to work each morning so I typically listen to a Podcast while driving. Throughout the day I will read my daily devotionals that I’ve subscribed to via email and peruse social networks and news sites. I don’t always get to read before bed, but I often try to get an hour of reading in before I fall asleep.

People have asked me to share whats on my daily reading list, so here goes…

First and foremost I read my Bible, typically via a daily reading plan! I also subscribe to a handful of daily devotionals that I receive vie email and they include:

There are several things I read via my web browser and they include:

I don’t spend lots of time on this reading list and I typically read through these at a quicker pace. Sometimes, I can get my daily news in 15 minutes in aggregate throughout the day. If an article looks like it will take longer than the time I currently have, I will bookmark it or I save it in Evernote. btw…I love Evernote and use it ALL THE TIME!!!

When I finish my web list, I go to my list of RSS feeds. I am currently using Feedly for Chrome and Android, which syncs with Google reader. The interface is pretty cool and I can access my feeds anywhere and anytime.

I am still building my list of feeds, but here are some of the more interesting ones:

In the evening, I do my best to read books via Kindle or a good old hardcover/paperback. I am usually reading three books at a time and bounce back and forth. Some of the genres I read are leadership, history (love American Revolution period) or a Christian book. Check out the store on Heartstone Journey for my current reading list and some of my recommendations.

    Great article and reading sources Tim. Thank you for sharing. I use gReader to sync with Feedly and make sure I scan the headlines every morning and sometimes during the day. You seem to have captured my favorite sources except for Reuters Top News/US News/Tech News, HP/EMC/VMware feeds, Chuck Hollis, Chad Sakac and Phandroid. If you are interested in EUC, try jasongaudreau.com – he is on my team.
