A book a week

My personal goal for 2010 is to read a book a week.  Below is the growing list of books that I am reading this year.  By December 31, 2010, there should be a total of 52 books on this list.  Feel free to recommend a book that you believe will help me accomplish my goal!  I will also keep notes indicating how each book adheres to the “10 Commandments of reading a book a week” which are as follows:

  1. Of the 52 books, only 12 can come from the Bible.
  2. I will read no more than 5 books by the same author.
  3. 10 books must be recommended by my mentors.
  4. 10 books must be recommended by readers of this blog.
  5. I can only re-read 5 books in 2010 that I have already read.
  6. Since I don’t have a formal business degree, 2 books must be textbooks.
  7. I will read at least 4 different business magazines cover-to-cover.
  8. 12 of the books I will read as part of a discussion group.
  9. Only 5 books can be less than 100 pages, not counting the 12 books of the Bible.
  10. I will write at least 1 exclusive blog article for each book.

Books I have read:

  1. Good to Great, Jim Collins

Books I am reading:

  1. My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers
  2. The Call, Os Guiness

Books that have been recommended or that I am planning on reading can be found on my Amazon Wishlist.

  1. I can’t wait to recommend reading for you, J! You are such a great student. My only prayer is that you do not lost sight of the time needed to marinate and apply what you learn from each. A weekly goal is aggresive so keep good notes!
