My Personal Reading List

I am inspired by this woman to create a personal reading list for 2012. We are both self-professing nerds, love Jesus and love to read. I think this will serve as extra motivation (as if I need any) to read and challenge myself in 2012. I am an achiever and learner (in addition developer, discipline, individualizer) so nerdy to-do lists are pretty much the highlight of my life. I wish I were kidding. So here goes nothing, my 2012 personal reading list, wish me luck!
