6 months - update on my books reading target

At the end of last year I set my self a target to read as many book as possible and hopefully at least 25 in 2012.

What I really want to achieve is 40 but I think realistically 25 is a more achievable target.

Here’s what I managed so far:

Audio Books (7)
Your Brain at Work  by David Rock   
Getting Things Done When You Are Not in Charge: Second Edition  by  Geoffrey M. Bellman   
Speak to Win by Brian Tracy   
Drive by   Daniel H. Pink   
Influencer by   Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield   
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
Effective NLP Skills by Christina Youell, Richard Youell

Kindle Books (4)
Management 3.0 by Jurgen Appelo
Training from the back of the room by Sharon L. Bowman
Behind Closed Doors: Secrets of Great Management by Johanna Rothman & Esther DerbyMade to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip Heath & Dan Heath
Paper books (1 in progress)

The Exceptional Presenter: A Proven Formula to Open Up and Own the Room by Timothy J. Koegel

So almost 12 done and if I want to get to 25 I might have to speed up a little which I hopefully will be able to do now that I might travel by train for a few weeks.
