How I Read 40+ Books in 2017 || PLUS My Top Picks

Finding-the-Motivation-to-Transform-Your-Home

 

When I started working toward my goals in January of 2017, I originally set out to finish 12 books in a 12 month period.  And, due to struggling to accomplish this in previous years, I was worried that I might not be able to cross this one off my list when it was all said and done.  But, I found a way to get more reading done – and I am here to share with you.

I’ve had a subscription to Audible for several years, but realized that I was not using the service to it’s full capability.  Once I started listening to books in the car, while cleaning, or even taking a walk around my neighborhood, I found that I was finishing books in record time.  If you’ve never tried the service, I highly recommend it.  You can even try it out for free for the first 30 days.  Win!!  🙂

So, without further ado, here is the entire list of books that I read in 2017 along with links to find them online if you are interested in reading them as well.  Enjoy!
