Intro, let’s go: For 2015, I’m recapping what I read, watched, wrote and listened to and whatever else. This isn’t a favorites or best, it’s just what happened to me in the cultural landscape. Music and podcasts are first, then what I watched. Now, reading. Next will be writing.
Every year, I believe I’ll read more books. And every year, I read about the same number. Below are 19 completed books. My wife told me she read 48, and that doesn’t include the books she thought of as “junk.” I like to think I “forgot” about some books, that I didn’t remember to add them to this ongoing list, but I’m not sure. So maybe I read 22 instead of 19?
I lost interest in several books after 5o or 100 pages. Those take up time. So does writing a new novel. So does writing a blog. (Excuses, yes!)
This year, I made an effort to read what was on my shelf. I went on a library fast. I broke that sometime in late October to pick up some of the new books, which you’ll see in the skimmed list.
