The Organised Hustler book club is a place where you can come when you’re in the market for a new read and find some suggestions quickly. This way you don’t have to waste your time or money looking for the perfect read. I want you hustlers to be able see a review on here, go wow I was thinking of buying that but I don’t know if it’s for me? Have a look at the review or if you’re really short on time just look at the cute little icons to get an overall vibe.
Saving my fellow hustlers time:
There is nothing worse than realising you have nothing new to read on your kindle and you have 10 minutes before you to need leave for a flight or train ride. You end up buying something terrible and spending the majority of the journey bored out of your brain.
I don’t have hours of spare time anymore to search amazon for my next read. The place I have been finding most of my new reads lately has been at the airport. No exaggeration here, but I am positive around 70% of my flights are delayed. Literally the one and only benefit of being delayed is that it leaves me with a few extra hours each month to have a look at new books. Thank god for airport book stores. My fellow hustlers may not get stuck in an airport bookshop with time to go through rows and rows of books, which is why I want to share my choices with you.
All of us time poor hustlers need to stick together and save each other time where we can.
Stop you wasting your hard-earned money:
Another reason I wanted to start sharing my book reviews is that I hate wasting money. I don’t want you wasting money either. It is really upsetting when I purchase a book for $30 only to find out it’s not for me and I won’t end up finishing it far less reading it again. For this reason, I like doing my research before I buy a book. I make my decision by either reading a number of reviews or having a decent read of it myself in the book store. I can normally tell a few pages in if the book is going to be my vibe or not. My taste in books might not always be the same as yours but my review will give you a better idea if it’s something you’re going to be running home to read each night or not.
A quick back story on how my love for reading slowly bloomed:
It was a very slow start for books and I. For the first twenty-one years of my life, books weren’t for me. I just didn’t have any interest in them. Looking back, I think that’s because I was never exposed to reading anything I was actually interested in. The only novels I read were the ones I was forced to read in school. Surprise, surprise, they were rarely topics I was passionate about.
My infatuation for books started in university when I discovered autobiography’s. Scar tissue by Anthony Kiedis was the first book I remember reading and going wow! Finally I understood why people get excited about books. I couldn’t put it down. I would be so excited to go home from university or work and jump into bed and continue reading it.
After finally finding a book I enjoyed, I gradually became more and more obsessed with reading. I have progressed from reading books only about rock stars and celebrities, to now reading a real mix of genres. My favourite genres are fiction, modern self-help, health and fitness and some trashy romance novels. Oh and the autobiographys of course. I even own my very own kindle!
Twenty-year old me would never have imagined I would be spending hours scrolling through amazon searching for new books to download on my kindle and have piles of books all over my room.
Looking at the books in my room while writing this, I am noticing a common theme. There almost all a shade of pink or white. Typical me. I don’t even consciously know when I am buying things that I am slowly turning my room into some sort of shrine for all things pink.
Let’s not digress into my pink obsession but instead I will give you the run down on book club.
So now what?
Each month I will review a new book. It will be rated using the very sophisticated system I have created below.
This is The OHBC (Organised Hustler Book Club) rating system, cute no?
At the end of each review I will let you know what’s coming up in the next month. I will be reviewing a mix of genres at various price ranges. I know the feeling when it’s one of those months and you can only afford a $0.99 book for your kindle.
If you have any suggestions of books you think I would love, please comment below or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
