The 100 Book Challenge for 2017

I am on a quest for wisdom in 2017 and have elected to set a goal of reading 100 books by the end of this year. Originally I set a goal of 52 books, for 1 per week, but I believe in stretching myself. This quest will take me down roads I have never traveled. I am not going to be random in my selection of books and have enlisted the aid of my friends on Facebook for recommendations, but will welcome recommendations from readers of this blog…if there are any.

True goals should stretch us just enough without snapping and breaking us!

My topics of choice will be as follows:

  • Inspiration
  • Revelation
  • Motivation
  • Leadership
  • Business
  • Communication
  • Biographies
  • Personal Growth
  • Relationship Growth
  • Ministry Growth
  • Church Growth
  • Maybe even some inspirational fiction

As a Christian pastor (Link to my church Turning Point Ministries of Rochester), and leader, I will say for the well-intentioned and concerned, I will be reading these books in addition to my personal morning devotions and Bible reading.

The formats I am using will be traditional paperback and hardbound, my trusty Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader, and Audible Subscription.

I am going keep a running list on this blog of the titles I have read mostly as a way for me to catalog and track my progress and if my time permits, I will record my thoughts about each title with short reviews.

For supporters that wish to leave words of encouragement, or even recommendations, feel free to post below! Thanks and God bless!
