Out of all the books read in 2012, this has to be my favorite.
My one criteria for choosing this book was that I will go back to it, again and again. It is beautifully written, beautifully honest and inspiring like few books are.
Given the fact that I have already shared about One Thousand Gifts in a previous post, I have made a few posters with some of my favourite quotes from the book. Hope they inspire you, too!
Books on leadership are sold by the bucket loads. There’s plenty to choose from, but then how do you do the choosing?

I don’t know about you, but beautiful book covers make me smile. More than that, they inspire me.
So while my husband and I are in Copenhagen, I decided to visit a few bookshops and see if the famous Danish love of good design translated at all into books. Now I’m not expert enough in either design or Danish design, but there were plenty smile-inducing covers to look at, in all three bookshops I’ve had the chance to see.
I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but they were taken with my iPod, while pretending that I’m not taking pics, but simply looking at it from an awkward distance. I’m sure the shopkeepers knew what I was doing, but they graciously let me continue.
Also, please do keep in mind that I have not read these books so I am not advertising their content.
I’ve not always planned a to-read list at the beginning of the year. Having enjoyed it thoroughly last year – and having been able to go back to it when wondering what book to read next – I’ve decided to make it a tradition.
I’m hooked on Goodreads Reading Challenge.
In 2011 I have set to read 50 books – have read 54.
In 2012 the goal was to read 60 books – have read 64.
What reading goal should I set for 2013?
