Leaders Read and Readers Lead…

I read a lot. There’s no doubt about that. Call me a bookworm if you will, but I wasn’t always like that. I hated school. Thanks to Amazon, things changed for me. Good books became easier to obtain, and now with the Kindle it’s become too easy! I would rather spend a few thousand buying books (even in anticipation of reading it some day) than spending about $100,000 on an MBA program.

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

If you love books as much as I do, then you’ll enjoy subscribing to my Book Club newsletter. My goal with this newsletter is to recommend books that will stick in your brain and inspire your life long after you’ve finished them. These books definitely changed my approach in life, and I’m sure they’ll do the same for you. It’s free forever and a fun way to discover reads that will change your world…

Reading is the best return on investment. You have to live your entire life in order to know one life. But with reading you can know 1000s of people’s lives for almost no cost. What a great return! James Altucher

So what was the challenge all about? Well being a slow reader, and never finding the time (heard that before eh?!) to read… I decided to put up a challenge, read 1 book each week of the year, so that’s 52 weeks in a year… 52 books to read!

Now I hope you’ll remember that, because what follows is my collection… ‘The Library’, if you will, of books that I’ve read. If you’d like to receive my latest reviews on the books alone, I suggest signing up today.
