Book List

As part of my 30 Before 30 project, I decided to read 60 books before I turn 30. That’s one book a month for five years. It doesn’t seem like much, but I’m already behind. Instead of wasting time between books deciding what to read, I decided to compile a list to keep me going. Once I get some books checked off my list, this will also be a place where I link to my reviews of the books I’ve read. I’d love to hear your suggestions.

  2. What a great challenge! All that reading will change your life! I’m a reader and have a number of great books to recommend, the top 5 being:

    1. Faith Like Potatoes: The Story of a Farmer Who Risked Everything for God by Angus Buchan, Jan Greenough

    2. First, Break All the Rules: What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently by Marcus Buckingham, Curt Coffman

    4. When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box by John Ortberg

    5. Now, Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham, Donald O. Clifton

  3. I had to read The Omnivore’s Dilemma for a senior seminar class in college. Not really my preferred topic of reading (Jan Karon books, my current read: The Land Between by Jeff Manion, or my recent find as a 5th grade student teacher: The Lightning Thief series by Rick Riordan!) but it was actually really interesting! Based on the few things I read about you, I think you’ll like it too. 🙂

  4. Pingback: Top Ten Reasons I Can’t Wait for Summer Break « Mrs. Dexter

  5. You should move The Omnivore’s Dilemma to next in queue! Every single person on the planet should read that book. It will change your life, especially since your post about Eating Animals!!

    cheers 🙂
