I did it!

 
 

Earlier this year I blogged about my goal of reading 25 books in 2015.  I hit my goal on August 17 and today, with two days to go until the new year, I completed my 30th book.  (Starting a new degree program in the fall really slowed down my personal reading from September to December.) 

Here are a few of my favorites:

1. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo - A must-read for those who love to organize.


2. Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ by Daniel Goleman - I think this book should be required reading for every human!


3. The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way by Amanda Ripley - An honest look at what we are doing wrong when it comes to our children's education.


4. Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh - A pure and beautiful classic.


5. The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran - Another beautiful and timeless classic.


6. Walden by Henry David Thoreau - Made even better with a post-read visit to Walden Pond.
