My reading year 2014

I read 68 books this year. Much less than previous years and I blame that on the 5 months we had cable again.

I reread some of my favorites and discovered new ones. I put them in no particular order but the *  marks my favorites. My reading goals for next year are

  1. to put a little bit more thought in the books I choose
  2. always have a book waiting before i finish the current one
  3. use the local library more often

I have found the NPR Book concierge and I think it will be really helpful in choosing my books.
