2018 Books In Review

“Where does the time go?”

“I can’t believe 2018 is almost over!”

“The year has flown!”

Sound familiar?  The often requoted phrases we find ourselves stating every year as we close out one year and welcome in the new frequently brings regret of the should have, would have, and could have’s.  However, with only four days left in 2018, I wanted to make sure you don’t have any regrets in 2019 in regards to your personal reading goals.  

Last December, I went through a quick course by Michael Hyatt and set up some pretty challenging goals.  While I didn’t nearly achieve what I wanted to, I did accomplish some because I had been intentional in what I wanted to do.

One of those goals was to read 20 books in 2018.  I wanted it to be a risky goal, but one that could be accomplished if I pushed myself.  While I haven’t gotten to the 20th book, I have put 16 books in the books for 2018.  

Below is the list by category of what I read this year along with what I am currently reading and trying to complete before 2018 ends.  

Happy New Year and Happy Reading!!
