I have sometimes heard friends say "I like to read this book" once every year or two. Wondering what books, if any, would you put in to such a category.

 

To kick things off, the following come to my mind:

1. Poor Charlie's Almanack

2. Snowball / American Capitalist

3. Man's Search for Meaning

4. Dale Carnegie's How To...

5. Ben Franklin's biography (or autobiography)

I plan to re-read both The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis regularly , even if it's every couple of years.

In 8 or 9 years I've been through them both twice..........

I'm going through them both again now, third time's a charm right. I'm finding it easier to read slowly and take breaks now and then to absorb what I just read and it seems to really help.

 

On the re-read list (I don't know if any of these are continual re-reads or not but I plan to read them one more time);

Charlie Munger's Psychology of Human Misjudgment.

Margin of Safety - Seth Klarman

Influence - Robert Cialdini (Munger mentions this multiple times in the Psychology of Human Misjudgment speech)

The Most Important Thing - Howard Marks

Born to be worthless - Kevin Solomons

The six pillars of self esteem - Nathaniel Branden

 

Investing books are great but these books can change your life. I speak from experience. I have read a dozen books by Branden and learn something new in every one. The Art of Living Consciously is a great follow up to the six pillars.
