In the video below, you will see me recommending 10 of the 151 books (as of 27 Dec) I have read so be sure to watch it!
I decided to sort them into five categories: 151 books If you want to be strict about it, what is personal and work related can be collapsed into: Personal (Fun Spiritality) = 62 books Work (Work Sexuality Relationship) = 89 books Anyways I devour to keep reading what I am interested in, to enjoy the process – to not just read for the sake of reading – and keep learning, growing and developing myself professionally and personally.
I started off setting a new year resolution of reading 52 books and watching 52 DVDs at the start of 2013.
By the end of June, I realised I was going to read more than 52 books by the end of year (57 to be precise) and so decided to challenge myself by doubling the goal (104)!
Estella remains aloof and hostile to Pip, which Miss Havisham encourages.
