37 books in 37 weeks

As the First half of my trip approaches tomorrow, one of my main objectives was to read one book a week during my journey. Not only do I think that travel broadens the mind in ways that are unique only to travel, but I also think that reading books on a wide variety of topics is also imperative in becoming more learned. Unfortunately throughout my entire 2 month trip of China I did not read one single book as I was either exploring or sleeping. So, allocating time in South East Asia for relaxing and rest I have started to pick up the pace on book reading. I decided to do this post as an online list that I will regularly update to not only make sure I reach my objective of reading a book a week but to also give any readers an opportunity to recommend any great books I might not be aware of. I might add that all of the books I have read have been free for me to read as I swap books in book exchanges.
