Books I read on sabbatical

Over my three-month sabbatical I read about 23 books. I listed them below, in no particular order. I marked with asterisks the top four books in terms of making an impact on me personally.

I wasn’t reading for any particular goal – just what struck my interest at the moment (that’s the privilege of a sabbatical!)

I am an information-addict; I find that I am always interested in learning something I didn’t know. That means I am drawn to read mostly non-fiction (although one can learn a lot through a good novel, too.) However, these days I am trying to make sure that I am taking action on what I read. So I will copy quotes from good books in my journal, and note what action I want to take as a result. I am much more likely to do something when I take these notes. The books I have designated with an * are those which merit significant journal entries.
