I had set a goal in 2011 to read a total of 12 books but fell short of the goal by three books. While it is always disappointing not to reach a goal, the nine books that I did read were good and I enjoyed them. I feel as though all the books helped me on a professional level to improve my work. All the books I read were through the Amazon Kindle App.
The 4 Hour Work Week: Expanded and Updated by Tim Ferriss
Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery by Garr Reynolds
Tough Guy: My Life on the Edge by Bob Probert, Dani Probert and Kristie McLellan Day with a foreword by Steve Yzerman.

A later post will have a list of books that I want to read this year. Again my goal will be 12 books this year.
