Books for people who don’t like to read


Reading can be challenging and time-consuming for some, but that doesn’t mean that books can’t be enjoyed by people who don’t like to read. With the right choice of text, even the most prominent “reading-hater” can find something to enjoy. In this article, I hand-picked the best books for people who hate reading.

How did I choose these books, and by which criteria?

a) Interesting, non-boring writing style. Unfortunately, there are not many interestingly written books.
b) Notoriety of the book. (Sometimes you only want to read something because a lot of people have told you about it. That makes a huge influence.)
c) Book thickness.
d) Benefit. The more useful the book is, the easier and more useful the given tips are, the more you want to read.
e) Sincerity. The more true stories, less acting, the more desire to read arises.
f) Humor and depth.
g) Whether the message is clearly communicated.

List of books for people who don’t like to read

1. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Only a few people have thought about it, but “The Little Prince” is not just a fairy tale. This book conveys an interesting philosophy and reflections on friendship, the meaning of life. It’s very charismatic and memorable and suitable for both adults and children.

The story follows the adventures of an aviator as he meets a mysterious prince who has fallen to Earth from another planet. Through their conversations, the aviator learns important life lessons about friendship, love, and growing up. 

Its beautiful illustrations and profound messages make this novella even appealing to non-readers. As a timeless work of literature, it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages for its themes of innocence, knowledge, and faith.

“The Little Prince” is the ideal book for anyone who wants to dip their toes into literature without committing to long work. Its simple language and complex themes make it the perfect easy-to-read book.

If you know people who don’t like to read, give them this book as a gift and… And if you think it’s too childish, you can give the one below, which I’m about to tell you about!

2. Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson

Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson

I present one of the most popular books in the world, which, unfortunately, not everyone has read.

It’s so useful that people can’t squeeze out its benefits the first time they read it.

That’s why I suggest you read it twice.

You will find the essential interest in the book’s main quote: “The quicker we let go of old cheese, the sooner we find new cheese.”

This book is necessary for you, because it will help you take another step towards the changes that you have been thinking about for a long time.

And it’s written in an extremely interesting way.

Otherwise, it wouldn’t be read by so many people.

This book is not thicker than the Bible, so you won’t notice when you turn the last page.

You will want more, more and more.

In my view, all three parts of the book were valuable and helped me fine-tune my self-interpretation.

To make its message accessible and entertaining, it’s written in a conversational style and includes humor and relatable characters. As a result of its fast pace and practical lessons, “Who Moved My Cheese?” is perfect for those who don’t enjoy reading. Additionally, this book is a wonderful introduction to self-help literature. This book is a great choice if you want to improve your outlook on change or just enjoy a fun and easy read.

3. The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino

The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino

Throughout the story of how Og Mandino became “The Greatest Salesman in the World,” Mandino describes 10 spiritual principles for success in business and in life. It shows how to be certain of one’s destiny and have perseverance until it is achieved.

I won’t go into too much detail about this book, but you must read it, even if you belong to the category of people who don’t like to read! Because this book perfectly complements this list of books for people who don’t like to read.

4. The Present: The Gift That Makes You Happier and More Successful at Work and in Life, Today! by Spencer Johnson M.D.

The Present: The Gift That Makes You Happier and More Successful at Work and in Life, Today! by Spencer Johnson M.D.

The book is written by the same guy who wrote the other book on this list, “Who Moved My Cheese,” that I talked about earlier.

This short motivational story will be great for people who are looking for a better perspective on life. You will read it in an hour, but it will definitely spark a desire to do it again!

A very interesting book that highlights four things:

1. How to focus on the present.
2. How to learn as much as possible from the past.
3. How to plan your future.
4. Why it’s necessary to have a useful goal.

Dr Johnson is teaching things related to life by using parallels. He does it so skillfully—in a way that everyone can understand. I think “The Present” is a brilliant work and I would highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for books for people who don’t like to read.

While there are many books that focus on living in the present moment, I really enjoyed the simplicity of this one. It helped me to remember what is most important in my life and why I should squeeze the maximum out of it. I too, am thankful for the gift of “The Present.”

5. Rework by Jason Fried

Rework by Jason Fried

First I tried to read this book more than 10 years ago.

Then it helped me to improve my business.

It’s easy to read because it has very short chapters.

You start and you finish in a few minutes.

This book is a MUST, so find a place for it in your workplace or in your home office.

You should reread it each month because, inside it, you will find the most important and easiest principles to reach more in less than an hour.

If you need more results and if you want to be more creative, this book is for you!

It’s great for people who: 

– Anyone who has been dreaming of creating something with their own strength.
– Anyone interested in how business is in the 21st century.
– Anyone trying to create a productive work environment.

That’s not all.

The author of the book is not a loser. He is a successful entrepreneur who has tried everything himself. So the book is based on theory, not blah blah blah.

Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hanson are the founders of 37 Signals, a pioneering software company that produces application software trusted by millions of people around the world. They are also co-authors of Signals vs. Noise, one of the most popular blogs out there.
