At the end of 2019, I set the goal to read one book a month in 2020. I just finished book #13. You can tell from the list below that I love non-fiction and a good personal development read. I enjoyed all of these books and picked 13 inspirational quotes to encourage you to pick up one or the other to read over the holidays. I hope to inspire you to transform and grow into the best version of yourself in 2021!
