2011 Reading List

Orientation is a multi-faceted array of experiences, heritage, and traditions. One of the best ways to improve one’s orientation is through constant immersion in new experiences and knowledge. One way I intentionally try to improve/change my orientation is through a constant reading regiment. My 2011 goal was to read 30 books. It’s been over 6 months and while I’ve had some schedule setbacks I have finished 9 books. I do still expect to come near my initial goal. The below is a recap of the books I’ve read to date. I wish more folks would share their reading lists.
