Books I Read in 2019

One of my main objectives for 2019 was to read at least one book per month.

“Reading more” has been an ongoing objective for several years. However, I feel as if it wasn’t until 2019 when I finally “crushed” this goal.

One of the main reasons why I was able to read so much this year is that I significantly reduced my social media time.

I focused mostly on my business, family time, and working on my projects.

I’m not going to sit here and claim everything was perfect. However,  making a conscious effort to focus my time on goals as opposed to mindless scrolling made a huge difference.

You’d be surprised at how many hours we spend on social media. It is mind-blowing.

And by the way – I still struggle with the “mindless scrolling” but it is something I’m working on eliminating :).

Ok, without further ‘ado, below is a list of everything I read this year.

If you have any questions about any of the books listed or would like the link for each individual post, let me know and I’ll direct you to them.

QUESTION FOR YOU: What did you read this year? Even if it was one book or 20 books, the number is not the point.

    Hi Mabel,You never cease to amaze me!  I was inspired by someone last week to create a vision board.   Though I haven’t put anything on paper yet, I have several things in mind to record.  To read more is one of my goals for 2020.  Today, on my drive back home (TX) from Arkansas, I was thinking that I would review your list of books to see if there were any I wanted to include on my reading list.  So, I was thinking that I would go back through your emails this week and locate all your books, and lo and behold I opened this email and you have them all listed !!!  Just amazing!
