The Book List

Thank you to everyone for the book titles. I am currently reading three books. It feels good to have so many excellent selections. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the titles I received were new ones for me.

To those of you who intended to send titles and now realize you missed this post, please send them anyway. I’d like to add them to my spreadsheet.

I’m not familiar with most of these titles, so the categories I’ve placed them into may not quite fit. I kept the original categories of my request; though, I was tempted to try to expand them to better fit. I put them in alphabetical order by title per section. There are over one hundred twenty titles.

I hope you can find a book–or seven–to benefit from, as well. A number of you recommended listening to the audio versions of these books. That’s a good idea. Thanks again, and happy reading!
