Reading and Winning in 2018!!

Another way to win in 2018 is to KEEP READING!

I am guilty of not reading all of the books on my 2017 list but, this year, I will and I mean it!

Reading can literally change your mind. It will open your eyes to a world you’ve never imagined and your view of the world will change.

Today, I am excited to share a list of books to consider in 2018. Because I admire the circle around me, I went to my network to gather a list of 3-5 books that have impacted or will make an impact on their life. One book in particular that recently changed my ideology about the criminal justice system is, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander (Mark Zuckerberg also recommends this book).

Get ready! Screen shot it, write it down, visit the Library, Amazon, or the Book Store. Below are books to consider in 2018.
