Books 30-32 on Journey to 52

Books 30-32/52...

I don't have a ton to say about the books that I've not written reviews on over the past month. They were good reads, quick reads, but I haven't really been in the flow for reading, which is very bad for me because I believe that reading is the key to my creativity. When I read, I write... or come up with new business ideas. I discovered that the problem was partly that I was following Tim Sanders advice and reading every business book that I could get my hands on, but had no business to which I could apply what I was learning... it burned me out. So, I've stocked the shelves with some David Ambrose and some Cormac McCarthy and I'm gonna dig out of this hole.

What hole? Well, I've read 32 books and we're in the 38th week of the year! That makes me 6 books behind schedule!
