I typically reserve book sharing of those I have already completed and feel good about recommending.
At the beginning of the new year, I’m sharing my 2018 Book List. These have been suggested from a variety of sources and I’m excited to start chipping away. You’ll notice the variety of leadership, fiction, finance, marriage, spiritual, biography and more. The hardest decision will be knowing which one to read “next.”
My goal for the year is to make it through 55 books and I am looking forward to the enjoyment and the growth that will follow from each one that I put a check mark beside.
Obviously, this is only the beginning of the list that will help me accomplish my goal, but it gets me off to a super start without having to think too hard. In fact, the top 2 are already downloaded to my phone and ready to begin.
