2015 Booklist

count: 15 read.  86 to go

A good portion of this year’s reading list are books that I have on hand, but have never finished.  So, it’s kind of a way to wrap a lot of things up and dive into things I’ve wanted to for a long, long time.  It’s the first year I’ve worked with a reading list.  It will be interesting to see how it goes.

Do you have any plans or lists?  Anything on this list?  Anything along these topics that stands out to you?
