20/20 Book Reading Plan

a plan to read 20 books by 2020

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…” Romans 12:2.


Objective: Read 5 books from each year’s list in order to read 20 books by the end of 2020.


Each of these titles is available for purchase in print or in electronic form. While this will require some expense to purchase the books, the monetary investment will yield great spiritual dividends for the glory of God.

Suggestions for reading:

1)      Read 10-15 minutes per day, perhaps adding it to your devotional time each day.

2)      Read with pen in hand, underlining or noting important statements.

3)      Have a reading accountability partner to help keep you on track.

4)      Try to read a book every couple of months.

5)      Pray for God to teach you great truths through the lives and ministries of others.
