A man with a mission in 2 of 3 editions

One of my favourite things about January is putting together my new reading list. I don't always stick to it, I rarely stop at just the ones I list. But it such an exciting way to start the year with a new list of books to read and add to my ever growing book cases (Actually, stacked next to my bookcases as my bookshelf is now too full for more books. . . )

Here are the first 20 books I plan to read this year. What's on your list? Any recomendations?
