Reading is Fundamental: 2017 Book List

The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else In BusinessPatrick Lencioni I had to read this for work -- but it is a good one. If you are a team leader, or aspire to be one, it can help you identify key issues that can cause disfunction and failure, and walks you through ways to get past them.

The Rocks: A Novel, Peter Nichols The perfect vacation novel -- this book follows the story of two people who first fell in love in the 1960s, drifted apart, then came back together in a very odd, and possibly tragic, way.

Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape, Jenna Miscavige Hill Scientology is fascinating. This book was written by the niece of the head of the church, and looks at her life as a child brought up in Scientology, what she went through, and how she finally decided to leave.

Becoming Queen Victoria: The Unexpected Rise of Britain's Greatest Monarch, Kate Williams I have a deep love for the British Royals, and their history. With the launch of the new Victoria TV series, I wanted to learn more. This was a great start! A look at what led to Victoria becoming the heir to the throne, with a brief insight to her very controlled upbringing that influenced how she reigned.
