Welcome to actionable reading where we take knowledge gained from reading and put it to work!

Sam Eklund Actionable Reading

What is actionable reading?

Hi, I’m Sam a fitness enthusiast, keen photographer and of course an avid reader. I started taking reading seriously again in 2022 with non-fiction books predominantly based around finance, productivity and health & fitness. The goal of course was to learn more and apply it to my life. I soon found myself becoming a  knowledge hoarder and severely lacking in putting what I learnt into action. This blog is for precisely that taking what I learn from reading and making their teachings applicable to everyday life. This outlet will hopefully be helpful to you by posting beneficial content but also to myself by providing some much needed accountability!

Website Goals

  • To produce book summaries that provide the most value to you, the reader, allowing application to your own life. 
  • To provide real life accounts of this knowledge in practice.
  • To establish a simple methodology to making whatever you’re reading actionable.


Definition: “Acted on; having practical value.”
