50 books in 52 weeks.

1356116829-1356116829_goodreads_miscI’ve been posting a lot of articles over the past few days in the Book Reviews section of my blog.
The reason is simple. I made a goal for myself and honestly it was a secret. I wanted to really increase the amount of books I was FINISHING this year.
I probably started over a hundred books last year and only finished ten. This year was all about doing it differently.
Therefore, I’ve come up with a goal for myself… 50 in 52.

This year I want to read 50 books in 52 weeks. Is it possible? I have no idea. It’s still better than ‘just trying to do better’. I’m like most of you and work better with a goal in mind. So, here I goal. Why don’ you try it with me?

I’ve got it broken up into categories like this…

10- FUN (fiction)



20-Non-Fiction (Biographies, Documentaries, other)

That is a sort of general guideline I’m working with. I don’t want to read nothing but leadership books but yet it’s not just going to be a bunch of science-fiction either.

It’s proven that reading anything makes your brain process information faster and more efficiently making you smarter. That’s why the top two ways of increasing your intelligence is to read and do puzzles. I’m not good at puzzles so…

Here we go.

I may work out a grading scale so you’ll know how much I have or have not liked them. We’ll see. This effort isn’t really to develop my critical skills but to merely DO what I’m always TRYING at.

As Zig Ziglar use to say, “If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.”


If you have any books you would like to recommend, let me know.
