I’m reading a book per week in 2017. Here’s why.

They say that the world’s top CEOs read over 50 books per year to keep their mind inspired and on the cutting edge of leadership and innovation.

Pledge a one-time year-end donation if I read 52 books in 2017

All pledges are a one-time year-end donation that will be charged on December 31, 2017 only if I accomplish my goal to read 52 books in 2017. All donations will go directly to Within Reach Global.

 

 

After just completing my first book, The Space Between Memories: Recollections from a 21st Century Missionary, I know that I need this kind of input and brain juice! I’m already penning the initial pages of my next book and I need more inspiration. Plus, I need the leadership skills required to lead Within Reach Global, the non-profit Christian organization that my wife and I founded. 

So this year, I will read a book every single week. Here’s how you can help.

I have already loaded up my Amazon wishlist with a number of titles (all Kindle editions) and now you can help me accomplish my goal to read a book every week in 2017.

Do you have a suggested book for me to read? I’m open to your ideas. I am interested in well-written books in most genres. Leave me a message and thanks a lot for helping me accomplish this goal!
