Is it OK to be reading more than one book at a time?  I hope so because I have a few going.  I need to get through this list so I can jump into my wish list of about 10 other books!  My book reading has slowed a bit as I also try to stay up with about 15 blogs and follow several periodicals on Twitter.  THere is always something good to read.  I wanted to share with you  the books I am currently reading:

1)  runners worldI am training for my first Half Marathon in October.  Pretty excited and anxious about that, but I needed a plan.  The Runner’s World Big Book of Marathon and Half-Marathon training is a great resource.  I am reading this on my iPhone through iBooks.



mastering seven decisions2) I am reading Andy Andrews’ Mastering the Seven Decisions as a follow-up to The Traveler’s Gift.  It is a workbook of sorts that gives exercises in each chapter on how to deploy each of the seven decisions outlined in the Traveler’s Gift.



lean turnaround3) I am a big fan of Lean.  I am a Lean consultant, so I try to stay up with some of the new stuff that comes out on the topic.  The Lean Turnaround by Art Byrne has been a nice refresher on the true nuts and bolts of the challenges of implementing a Lean transformation from a Leadership perspective.  I have already taken a few tidbits and shared with clients and others.


Personal Development is important for me.  These are 3 books that help my development, all in different ways.

So, what are you reading right now?  Have you read any of the books I am currently reading?
