10 Books On My Reading List

10 Books On My Reading List

One of my goals this year is to read 40 books. Currently, I’m reading about one book each week. I have way too many books that I want to read and there are so many good books out there to read. But I want to especially focus this year on reading great books.

Honestly, there are many things that can have influences, people are probably the biggest influence on other people, but books are too. At least that’s what I think.

I wish I could remember where I heard this, but I’ve heard that after reading 3 or more books on a certain subject, you will know more than the average person on that subject.  Now, I doubt this is statistically proven, and I don’t even know if I have my facts straight, but I do know that this is at least partly true. Books are great for learning.

That’s why I want to read more books this year. And, without any more rambling, I give you 10 of the best books on my reading list. Just keep in mind, they’re not in any particular order.

  1. When I Don’t Desire God by John Piper

  2. 12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You by Tony Reinke

  3. The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul

  4. Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper

  5. Knowing God by J.I. Packer

  6. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

  7. Overcoming Sin and Temptation by John Owen

  8. Thoughts For Young Men by J.C. Ryle

  9. The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

  10. Shadow of The Almighty by Elisabeth Elliot
