Welcome to my Book Nook

I love to read. Reading is one of the best ways for me to learn about new concepts and ideas. That said, I don’t generally take the time to reflect on what I have just read (i.e., learned) and I often find the content of one book melding into the content of another. So, for 2020, I am setting my intention to change that habit and I will read, rate, review, and share my thoughts on at least one book per month. The books that I’m reviewing will be in the leadership development/personal development/business space. That’s not to say that I’m giving up on fiction (to check out what else I’m reading, you can follow me on Goodreads).

I hope you find these reviews helpful and I welcome your thoughts and comments. I’d also love to hear what you’re reading!
