As I look back on 2012, I think about all the amazing books I read and how I have learned from each and every one of them. I wanted to share some of them with you. I say “some of them” because I think I may be missing a few. There are 30 listed below, so that isn’t too bad! I challenge you to read the ones that are appropriate to your life. Reading is one of the best, least expensive ways to continue to grow in your knowledge. I also do alot of my “reading” in the car while driving. Although that may sound extremely dangerous, I mean by listening to them on CD. I would say most of these came from my local public library as well, so they cost absolutely nothing! No excuses, start reading!
