The Top 10 Books I read in 2020

I started 2020 with a resolution to make time to read more than last year and I have read LOTS, especially as I have spent much more time at home due to lockdowns. I have narrowed down to a list of my ten favourite books. These are the ones which I feel have been particularly powerful and the topics range from mindset, money to general life. I have added their amazon links for ease and any commission will be donated to charity.

I truly believe a book can inspire new and fresh ideas as well as different ways of thinking which have the positive knock on effect of introducing the power to transform our lives. I usually start my day with reading a chapter, sometimes two depending on how much time I have, whilst enjoying my morning coffee. It has really changed the way I approach my day.

I hope you enjoy reading them!

About Binny

Hi, I'm Binny - a writer, dreamer and serial wanderluster with a love for Wildlife Conservation. I am originally from Kenya but I now live in London. 'Karibu' to Binny's Food and Travel! I regularly share my experiences eating out, cooking and travelling, both in the UK and globally, as well as educate on the plight of Wildlife. I am an ambassador for World Animal Protection and regularly support the work of The Born Free Foundation, Four Paws and Dreams Come True Charity. I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way. It's my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible!
