Books I Read In 2016

Here’s a list of books I read in 2016. I started keeping track in 2011 after a conversation with my friend Matthew Landrum. I try to complete two to three books each month. You can find previous lists here:

  1. I’ve read the two Pressfield books and Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Loved Neverwhere although it’s not my favorite Gaiman novel. If you liked the Pressfield books, you might like his The War of Art.
