Everyone that knows me knows I read a lot.    It’s a big piece of who I am and who I want to be.


I’m also pretty busy.  I have a full time job, I volunteer, I have a partner, an apartment and a cat to take care of, and, as you know, I prioritize travel – another aspect of my personal and emotional wellbeing 🙂


So how do I make sure I stay up on my personal development?  In 2014, I decided I needed to set a literary goal to make sure I was prioritizing my reading and learning.  I decided I would read 26 books that year – one every two weeks, and keep a log via a reading list to make sure I stay on track.


And, wouldn’t you know, I met it! (Albeit on the last day of 2014, but darn it, I made it!)


Check out my reading list below – some have my reviews, others are linked to other helpful reviews.  If you’re inspired to read one, please consider using the affiliate link to purchase a copy for yourself and tell me how you enjoy it (or hate it, cool with that too)!  Each purchase you make helps to support me and keep the site ad free at no extra cost to you 🙂
