30 Hot Books for Your Backlog (September)

I am running a new experiment.

I love reading books; I love doing research; And I love making lists. So why not publish a regular backlog of new books that (I think) would be great to add to your reading backlog? Last month, I published the first edition on Forbes. But I think it’s better to continue new editions on my own blog.

It’s important to know that I haven’t read most of these books. However, based on my research, my gut feeling, and the position of the stars, I strongly believe these new books are worth reading. So, here they are: my 30 personal reading tips for September!
