My read a book a month challenge for 2011

7 Jan

I am not a good reader of books – sure I absorb tons of online content from blogs and guides, but I cannot sit long enough to read a book. For the last 12 months I have been trying to read Richard Branson’s book, Business Stripped Bare, but, I’m only 10 pages in. The only time I can read a book all the way through is when I am on holiday.

So, in 2011 I decided to attempt to read one book a month. For many of you that might seem easy, but for me, it’s a challenge! So here is my list of 12 books, and I promise I will write a quick review about each one.

* The links are Amazon affiliate links which basically means I get a few pennies if you purchase the book through this blog post. Of course, you don’t have to, but Amazon is one of the cheapest places to buy books on the internet.

I am not sure what order I will read the books, but I have started January by reading Brilliant Marketing – I know a business book, how boring, but it’s a skill I need to learn!  So there you have my list, want to join in the ‘1 book a month challenge’? Leave a link to your list of 12 books and I will link to it in this post.

If you are based in Leeds here are two reading clubs that I am aware of – if I find any more, I will update this post:
