National Reading Day, January 23rd 2021: Motivational Books

This year National Reading Day in the UK falls on January 23rd. In the spirit of the day (and to give us more ways to keep busy during lockdown) we have put together some great books for readers to explore throughout 2021.

Our Favourite Motivational Books

This is the time to be reading motivational books. Whether it’s to help us get through difficult times (and who isn’t experiencing those right now), or to help us gain the inner courage to make changes in our lives either now or post pandemic, we couldn’t think of a better time to explore books that will expand our minds and hearts.

Speak your truth by Fearne Cotton 

This self-help book from one of the UK’s beloved radio and TV presenters, is a guide to finding your voice. Knowing when to speak up, and not letting yourself be silenced in all areas of your life (both work, social and personal), is such an important message. This book is great for helping you find your voice and your confidence, all at the same time.
