In our goals for 2008 we’ve both got down to read a book a month. Jenny isn’t doing too well but once she gets hold of Audio Books I reckon she’ll be away.
So far I’ve read the following titles this year:
- The way of the wild heart by John Eldredge
- Talent is Never Enough by John Maxwell
- The Road Less Travelled by M. Scott Peck
Books on my list for the rest of the year are (most of which are in my drawer ready):
- History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell
- God at Work by Ken Costa
- Money, Sex and Power by Richard Foster
- 360 Degree Leader by John Maxwell
- Fit to Be Tied by BIll Hybels
I’m sure some others will make it onto the list before 2009 arrives.
So when do I read? Mostly late at night, especially if Jenny turns in early. Otherwise holidays are great reading opportunities, I read most of The Road Less Travelled in Switzerland this Easter. The odd hour at a weekend makes a nice break from work. I’ve tried hard to get through good meaty books which make me think, otherwise the only things I am reading about are technical bits and bobs, which in the grand scheme of things are of no great consequence and within 6 months will probably be old news anyway.
Pick up a book, read a magazine, listen to talk – do something that makes you think. And learn, keep learning. That’s my approach to life. There’s so much out there to discover!
