With temperatures cooling down (finally), indoor activity season is beginning. Reading definitely tops my favorites list of things to do while stuck inside the house so I thought it would be a good time for me to share my book list for the beginner Minimalist. Keep in mind you can find almost all of these titles at your local library, and some of these books can even be found on Audible. If you are interesting in trying Audible, you’ll get 2 free audiobooks and a 30 day FREE trial when you use my link! I’ve also included links to the books if you would like to purchase your own copy. I prefer a tangible book in my hands when I’m reading, plus, I like to have a hard copy so that I can highlight or take notes on the side.

I don’t consider this to be a comprehensive list, but I think these books may be a great place to start and Audible makes it easy to listen on the go. There are also many TED Talks, podcasts and blogs devoted to the topic of Minimalism. I’ve really been enjoying the podcast by The Minimalists.
