Okay, so I couldn’t help myself… I didn’t stick with 24 books on my list like I did the last two years. Instead, since I ended up reading over 135 books and ebooks in 2012, I decided that I could double the number of books I planned specifically to read in 2013. This would challenge me to start and finish some books that have been sitting on my shelf for too long but would still give me space to add in extra books that I come across during the year and want to read right away.
I chose 12 books each in four different categories: 12 spiritually encouraging books, 12 business/productivity/leadership books, 12 fiction/biography books, and 12 home/family-related books. My plan is to read one from each category every month.
