I spend as much time reading as I can. I don't read fast anymore. Mostly slow, reflective, and way too much musing on the author's thoughts sending me into my own streams on consciousness. There are a few books on working on now that don't make this list and a few "on the table" to start, which I feel have the makings of important books for me to read or finish reading (see the up-coming post on "What's On My Table to Read in 2018").
The order is arbitrary and does not suggest which is the #1 or #10. Nor of these books the only ones I read in 2017; but they are the ones that have most impacted my thinking, challenged my Christianity (really my attachment to christendom), and motivated me toward church ministry and being faithful in my call as a church planter in the Hill community of New Haven, CT.
I highly recommend these books for your 2018 reading . . .
