2011 Reading List
Beginning last year I expanded my reading list to include a broader spectrum of subjects. My intention was to gain more understanding and view points from others. I started reading novels, business and leadership, Christian, cooking, photography, and more. I look forward to expanding that even more in 2012. Included in my new endeavor is my Personal MBA reading list.
Crazy Love – Francis Chan – Started slow… then it started getting personal and really hit home.
Pillars of the Earth – Ken Follet – this was the longest book I’ve read – It was a great read.
