For quite a few years, I’ve enjoyed reading the posts of several bloggers who are trying to read 52 books in 52 weeks. I’ve also wanted to find a good way for me to keep track of the books I’ve read. And it gives me a good reading target to shoot for.
Last year, I read 59 books. Or, more accurately, I listed 59 books that I read. I “read” many business books in the form of getAbstract summaries and I don’t list books that might reveal certain things I might (or might not) be working on.
I’m doing the same thing in 2017. My approach is the same in previous years – I’ll simply update this post from time to time from time to time throughout the year as I finish books.
I’ve enjoyed doing this challenge every year and hope you find the list useful. And I encourage you to take the challenge yourself.
I welcome your recommendations of good books I might read this year.
As Bill Taylor says, “Are you learning as fast as the world is changing?” Challenging yourself to read 52 books is probably a good way to start to answer that question.
