Building Up My Own Personal Library

When I decided to pursue online freelance work a few years ago, I knew that I really have to work hard on developing my skills and learning new ones. I know that having the right mindset and acquiring the necessary skills will allow me to have a successful freelance career. I am taking part in some online classes and webinars and have been reading books and online articles that will help me to push forward and pursue my goal.

One of the important things that I learned from these classes and webinars is to really take the time to read and research. I have always loved reading since I was little and have actually collected a number of books throughout the years. Unfortunately, I lost all of my books when our house burned down over a year ago.

There was an article that was published at success.com that has inspired me to start collecting books again and to build my own library of books at home. I started saving a portion of my online income and set up what I call my ‘education fund’. I decided that I would go to the bookstore every three months or so and buy the books that I need, specifically books that will help me in my personal development and those related to my online work. Books can be quite expensive especially new ones but there are second-hand/thrift shops that sell pre-owned books that are still in good condition so I decided to buy my books from them. (I have also been surfing online forĀ cool guitar straps because our youngest son is planning to buy a guitar from his earnings from his summer job).

These are just some of the books that I’ve bought so far:

I’ll be going back to the bookstore in a month or so and I can’t wait to add more to my collection.

    I love books too! Everyone makes fun of me for still wanting to keep a “library” instead of switching to an e-reader… It’s just not the same!
