Book List 2017 | Ashlee Proffitt

One of my goals for 2017 was to read 12-16 books this year. But then I started making my book list and there were so many I wanted to read that I decided 24 in 12 months was feasible. My book list grew when I decided to tackle some classics as well as a few books I have read in the past but just can’t seem to remember.

In this post John Piper does the math and let me know that if I spent only 15 minutes a day reading I could read 20 average size books a year, which means I just need to increase the minutes a day slightly to get in that entire 24. Breaking big goals into smaller chunks makes achieving them so much easier.

My entire book list is below not in any particular order.
