My goal this year was to finish reading a book every other week. (For the math or calendar challenged, that’s a goal of 26 books.) I’m happy to say that I smashed through that goal. I ended up with 44 books on my Read in 2013 shelf during the year.
For those of you looking for finance or compliance-related books, these may be of particular interest:
- High Performance with High Integrity
- Mortal Bonds
- Empty Mansions
- The Signal and the Noise
- Octopus: The Fall of Sam Israel
- Act of Congress
- The Ponzi Scheme Puzzle
You can see the cover for each and every book just below. If you look closely, you will see that the books are in alphabetical order. If you look even closer, you will see that each letter in the alphabet is represented.
I responded to a challenge on Goodreads to do so. It helped clear a few items that had been loitering on my to-read list, based solely on the first letter of the book’s title. As you might expect, the letters Q, X, Y, and Z have very limited choices.
I’m tracking my reading activity in Goodreads. I find the platform to be a great way to share book recommendations and to discover books to read. Now I’m looking for reading suggestions for 2014. Do you have recommendations?
