I read 40 books in 2016. All of them were non-fiction. I know, I know, I need to add some fiction books to become a well rounded reader. I plan on including some fiction (a book or two) this new year. Have you seen my digital library?
Each book I read in 2016 had an impact on my thinking. I enjoyed all 40 books, but there were two that really stuck out and I recommend you read both. A.S.A.P.P.D.Q. (As soon as possible, pretty darn quick)!
Amazon’s description of The Legacy Journey
There’s a lot of bad information in our culture today about wealth―and the wealthy. Worse, there’s a growing backlash in America against our most successful citizens, but why? To many, wealth is seen as the natural result of hard work and wise money management. To others, wealth is viewed as the ultimate, inexcusable sin. This has left many godly men and women confused about what to do with the resources God’s put in their care. They were able to build wealth using God’s ways of handling money, but then they are left feeling guilty about it. Is this what God had in mind?
Amazon’s description of Glory Days
We all face them. Strongholds with a strong hold on our lives. Roadblocks to our joy. Obstacles in our marriages. Fortresses of fear blocking us from peace. How can we bring down these walls that keep us from the future God promises? … Need a new battle plan for life? Keep walking, keep believing. These may be your Glory Days.
I originally wanted this post to be my #1 read of 2016 but I just couldn’t do it. I had to do two books. There were a few other books that fought for a top spot on my list and are excellent reads:
|Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
|Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win
Jocko Willink & Leif Babin
|Man, Myth, Messiah: Answering History’s Greatest Question
|People Over Profit: Break the System, Live with Purpose, Be More Successful
