From my desk this week

Hello from my desk this week. The year is coming to an end soon.
I thought I would share some of the books I have been reading this year. They have helped move things along with my business and life. I might have mentioned some of these book in my blog already.
There is no harm in talking about them again. Maybe give you some last minute inspiration for gifts for someone you know or for yourself. I am in planning mode for next year. I am been sick again with another cold so I am feeling like I am walking through thick mud dragging myself to the finish line of the end of the year. Planning and reading is giving me a new refreshing perspective and feel ready for new starts and challenges for next year. I can focus on having a cracking good time in the holidays.
Kindle has been my friend this year making a quick read here and there far more accessible. You know those long bus journeys, dentist waits or in a cafe waiting for a friend to turn up.  Sorry this is not a plug for kindle or Amazon I just use the two services a lot. You can find these book elsewhere too.

Here is my list of books I have found helpful this year.
