Top 10 Books I Read In 2012 (Ministry & Fun)

I love to read and had the joy of reading through a number of books in 2012. I thought it would be fun to post my “Top 10 List” both for books I read for ministry and books I read for fun. For me, this was the year for Kindle books – I read most of these on my Kindle App. Several of these books were published this year but that was not necessarily the case for all of them.
