I'm an avid reader. So much so, that I strive to read a minimum of one hour a day and 52 books a year. While I don't always achieve those goals, I do read a lot.

Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)
Shut Up and Listen!: Hard Business Truths that Will Help You Succeed (Tilman Fertitta)
Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams (Matthew Walker, PhD)
The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life. (Robin Sharma)
Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success (Adam Grant)
Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know (Malcom Gladwell)
