Books I Read In 2014

This past year, I fell well short of my goal to read 40 books in a year. That being said, I enjoyed some of the best books I’ve ever read.

My least favorite book this year was King Solomon’s Mines.

My favorite fictional character goes to Tiffany Aching for a third year in a row, Mr. Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching series never seems to grow old.

A Moveable Feast was just that – delicious.

The best book I read this year was Unbroken. I am sure you were told by a friend to read it at to some point over the last few years and you need to listen to them. If not them then me. Please read it. I beg you.

If you don’t trust me just read one of the 15,000+ 5 star reviews on Amazon.com. I finished it a few weeks ago and I am not sure I can say it changed my life but it has changed its trajectory for now. I still cannot believe anyone lived that experience.

Thanks for reading, and please share any recommendations for 2015 in the comments section below. Thank you in advance.

Happy New Year.

Cheers,

Bob
