Focus on a book per month during 2013

I have been a proponent of reading 52 books per year since 2007. I have done my work, (54 and counting in 2012). But for 2013, I am going to try something different. I am setting my goal of 52 books, but 12 of those are going to be for deep analysis and slower reading. Let me explain.
During each month I will pick a book, and read it slowly, practice the principles, (maybe read it more than once) during each month I am going to focus into this book as a topic of study. There are so many great books that it is impossible to read and learn from all of them, but I am going to pick 12 and read them in detail learning from them as much as possible.
That doesn’t mean I am not going to read the other 40 to reach 52, it only means that I am going to really try to focus during this year. I believe this will set the tone, the thinking and the ideas that I will have over those months, but also I believe that I am going to be able to learn more from each of those books, also.
Interesting in the journey, I will be posting the book of the month, and if you are interested will be more than happy to share my insights also.
In a way, I am going to follow Bruce Lee advice, only I am not going to read the book 10,000 times, but in a way that most wouldn’t.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
