Blog Update: Reading Lists

February 1, 2011

[anniesorensen.com] 2011 Reading List

There are fun things happening behind the scenes here at [anniesorensen.com], and I can’t wait to show you what we’re working on. Until then, I wanted to point out a small thing you might have already noticed – reading lists!

As you’ve probably realized from my extreme book geekery, reading and learning new things is my biggest passion. And inspiring someone else – namely, you – to learn something new? Or to pick up a book, perhaps? Even better.

I know it doesn’t include the blog articles or magazine features or ebooks that I read, but I did keep track of all of the ‘book’ books I read throughout 2010. It started as a way for me to remember and look back upon what I had read and learned, but as time went on it turned into more. It led to your suggestions of related books I might enjoy. It sparked discussions. It provided value to me, and provided me a way to give value to you. It built up relationships.

Basically, it rocked. Keeping track of and publicizing my reading list will now forever be something I take the time to do.

There is now a permanent link at the top of this site to my 2011 Reading List. At the bottom of that page is the archived 2010 Reading List, if you’re interested in taking a peek.

I hope you enjoy it. I hope you find, upon glancing through it, at least a smidgen of something that helps.

And then I hope you come back here and let me know what I am always interested to know – what are YOU reading?

    Right now I am reading “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when Stakes are High” by Kerry Patterson. One reason is I am looking into being more involved in my community politics and I want to be able to clearly communicate in those “crucial conversations” that may come up along the way. I am learning a lot and hopefully can practice and get better at this skill.

      Danny, high-five for your discipline, Crucial Conversations isn't the most entertaining of books. :) Thanks for stopping by and sharing, I appreciate it!

        I just finished reading The Catcher in the Rye. I've been reading a lot of classic fiction. Here's a link to my 2010 reading list. http://www.tylerjorgenson.com/…/

    I'm currently reading “Necessary Endings” by Henry Cloud (about things we have to give up in order to move forward). Very good.

      Not familiar with that one, Daniel, will have to check it out. Thanks!
