How many books do you read a year?

Why not finish this year off by purchasing books you can read over Christmas, or start in the New Year.  I don’t think that youth pastors are known for being readers.  That stereotype is slowly changing.

One of the best investments I made this past year was to get an iPad.  I love reading on my iPad.  One feature that I love about reading on my iPad is that I can highlight parts and then at the end of the book, I can send it to my evernote account.  I love being able to categorize all the books I have read, and the quotes that I could use whenever.  Plus, the books are so cheap on kindle.  What do you read on? 

Here are a few books that we loved this past year, and a few books we plan on reading in the new year.  What else would you add to this list?
