My 24 Books of 2019

In 2019 I set a goal to read 24 books in 12 months (largely in the self-development space) – and with the help of some recommendations from friends and experts, the list turned out some really amazing titles.

Some might argue 2 books a month is a lot of books, and some might argue it’s a tiny number. What were my thoughts on the experience? Check out my summary, What I Learned From Reading 2 Books a Month for 12 Months.

Without further ado, here’s my 2019 list, categorized by general subject. They are in no particular order; however I’ve starred ones I would highly recommend (amazingly, many of them).
