The strongest characteristic on my Strenghtsfinder 2.0 profile is Learner. I have always enjoyed learning all sorts of new things and I have also been an avid reader (My parents have a picture of me reading in a chair at 5 a.m. in the morning when I was 8 years old. They discovered me when they came downstairs to have breakfast before my dad went to work). I normally read three books at a time – one business, one nonfiction and one fiction. These are what I will be working on this summer:
Start with Why by Simon Sinek (reading this for the 12 Books group).
Fred 2.0 by Mark Sanborn (reading this for the 12 Books group).
What’s the Future of Business by Brian Solis
The Leadership Challenge (Fifth Edition) by Jame Kouzes and Barry Posner (reading this for a group on Goodreads).
The Impact Equation by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith
Revolutionary Summer by Joseph Ellis
Gettysburg by Allen C. Guelzo
Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick
King’s Deception by Steve Berry
The Eye of God by James Rollins
Hour Game by David Baldacci (working my way through all of his books)
The Bone Vault by Linda Fairstein (working my way through all of her books)
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
