52 Books for 52 Weeks — 2019 Reading List

I challenge you to read a book every week and see the difference in your life and thinking.

I am taking this challenge upon myself as well! This is my gift to you for 2019. If you think this list is not meant for you then, why not create one for yourself and share it with me? I would love to see your book’s suggestion! I could quote hundreds of successful people who advocate the habit of reading.

If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

–Maya Angelou
