For the last couple of years, I have tried--sometimes more than other times-to read 100 books in a year. This year, I am more serious about it than I have been in a while. It's a valuable goal, I think. Without being in school, reading is the prime way I'm getting further education. I'm drawn to books that are written by writers about their craft and self help books, particularly ones that deal with unblocking and creative things. I really wish that bookstores had creative sections within self help sections. It would make my searching a whole lot easier. I want to be a mentor who helps to unblock others, or help people find their passion. I like helping people see aspects of themselves that they didn't even realize were there. Reading other people's approaches to this is going to be very helpful.

While my list is numbered, it is not the order I will be reading the books in. I wanted a numbered list so I could add more as I get them. I have a lot of other books that I haven't added, but I think for now the remaining 35 I will wait on. I am bound to buy more books throughout the year. It's kind of impulsive for me. I have an addiction to books and information. Even if I don't get to the book immediately, I am glad that it is still there. But I am going to give serious effort to reading what I have. I have so much love for the Amazon Marketplace. I am a fan of used books. I think I found a liking for them in college. Used always means cheaper. There's also that chance that your books will be marked, too. The history of individual books can be interesting. I also really like using Powells. I also recently picked up some books from Overstock.com. I'm not sure what compelled me to check them, but they had a good selection of what I was looking for too. Their prices also beat Amazon's. Another cool thing about Overstock: they take Paypal. That's always a great thing in my book.

This is just the start of my list. I'll be editing it with links and to be alphabetical later. All I did right now was gather up my books and start writing down titles and authors.
