Reading Is My Superpower! #EBRecommends

Reading really can be a superpower – for kids and adults alike.

The launch of the Exclusive Books Reading is my Superpower campaign at the start of last year was met with such enthusiasm by both customers and booksellers alike, that we have installed the campaign as an annual January event across our stores. The idea that reading can empower you with skills, confidence and insights is so resonant with readers, that we received this encouraging feedback from a grateful father regarding this campaign, “finally, my child feels seen,” he said.

Together with a brilliant range of dictionaries (perfect for back-to-school) work books and study guides, we have created a new range of the super-popular, limited edition Reading is My Superpower school stationery, consisting of rulers, pencils and pencil bags. Look out for the selection in front of stores during January.

Whether you are back to school, back to work, or back to self-development work, there is a brilliant, wide range of books that offer a toolkit for a myriad skills and insights to set you up well for the new year. The best and most assured investment remains the investment in yourself, and you can find invaluable pointers on the shelves of Exclusive Books.

Many of the books on Exclusive Books Recommends for January will supercharge your superpowers.

Here’s a taste of six:

Clear Thinking Shane ParrishClear thinking, by Shane Parrish – Few things will change your trajectory in life or business as much as learning to think clearly. Yet few of us recognize opportunities to think in the first place. According to Farnam Street founder Shane Parrish, we must get better at recognizing these opportunities for what they are, and deploying our cognitive ability in order to achieve the life we want. Clear Thinking gives you the tools. Through stories, mental models, and more, Parrish offers the missing link between behavioral science and real-life outcomes. The result is a must-have manual for optimizing decision-making, gaining competitive advantage, and living a more intentional life.
