So you might remember from my 101+ goal list I put that I was going to read at least fifty different personal and professional development books by September of 2020.

I decided that I would share the list of books that I have (Yes–I think I already have fifty books for this particular challenge, if not a few extra).

So I have a total of 90 books that I’m hoping to read before September 28, 2020. I’m off to a good start–I’ve gotten five finished (though I still need to write and post reviews over several of them). So that means I only have 85 more to go. One nice thing about the kindle–I can go between a couple of books at once, which is what I’ve been doing. But if I stick with trying to read one book a week I think I will still be able to finish these off.

This may just be the year that I break out of this funk that I’ve been in and actually have an idea of what it is I want to do with my life.
