What I Read in 2013

Posted by Andrew |

As the year ends, I thought I would provide a list of all the books I've read over the last year. As I get older, I find I have to be more intentional to find time to read each day as reading time competes with busy work schedules, gym, mindless tv shows and movies and other pursuits.

Nonetheless, I hit my goal of a book a week.
