Posted on January 9, 2012

As you may have noticed, I am an avid reader. I do this because “Leaders are Readers and Readers are Leaders” (Mark Batterson). I make time for it by reading on the go – I can read eBooks on my phone, iPad, or Kindle. Sometimes I reread the classics, but many of the books I am reading for the first time.

Here are 12 books I want to read in 2012, in no particular order:
