My Healthcare Reading Backlog

book-imageMy mother worked so hard to turn me into a reader. She would be proud to know that I am writing about the value I place on reading. From a business perspective, I think reading is essential; from a personal perspective, reading helps to chill me out. For whatever reason, books make me happy! (That wasn’t the case when I was a kid.)

The bad news is that lately I have fallen behind in my reading. The stack of business and marketing books that I want to read is growing by the day. Hopefully this fall will be a good time for catching up on reading. I’ve heard of seasonal reading patterns although I’ve never tracked mine. It is likely that I do more pleasure reading (fiction) in the summer months and business reading in the fall and winter. Perhaps that’s just an excuse for failing to keep up over the last few months. In any event, the books are here, waiting to be read.

Feeling overwhelmed, I thought I’d share my reading list with you, along with links to each of the books on Amazon. Misery loves company.

I’d love to hear what you’re reading and finding to be of value! Please feel free to share by leaving a comment.
