Three Books To Start 2023

I try to read as much as I can. I'm always trying to up my annual book count and as I start the year, I love to look to books that can help me make the year better than the last. If you are looking for a little motivation or know someone that would love a motivational literary gift, check out these book ideas!

For anyone looking to improve their habits in the new year, this book would be a great gift to kick off the new year.

"No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights."


There is no doubt that sneaker culture is gaining popularity. With trends like athleisure and the general public prioritizing comfort, it doesn't look like it's going anywhere. Whether you know someone, or are someone, that identifies as a sneaker head or just a casual sneaker wearer, this book on Nike founder Phil Knight will entertain and motivate anyone.

"In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.

Young, searching, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company with one simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year, 1963. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight’s Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is more than a logo. A symbol of grace and greatness, it’s one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world."


For anyone looking to hone their untapped talents in the new year, this book will delve into unlocking talent. This book could be just the push any creative in your life needs to start the year!

"What is the secret of talent? How do we unlock it? In this groundbreaking work, journalist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel Coyle provides parents, teachers, coaches, businesspeople—and everyone else—with tools they can use to maximize potential in themselves and others. Whether you’re coaching soccer or teaching a child to play the piano, writing a novel or trying to improve your golf swing, this revolutionary book shows you how to grow talent by tapping into a newly discovered brain mechanism."

"What are the secrets of the world’s most effective teachers, trainers, and coaches? Discover the four virtues that enable these “talent whisperers” to fuel passion, inspire deep practice, and bring out the best in their students."
