Books read, 2014

Every year I do a listing of the books I read in the past year. Here is this year's list.

Man, you read a lot. I loved "The New York Review of Bird" in Strange Wine.

Good lord, that's a lot of books!!

I'm envious. I only read 11 or 12 despite desiring to read triple that.

Happy New Year, Tom.

I've largely given up reading periodicals, and I don't watch a huge amount of TV, so I can concentrate on books. I have a long commute, so I do a lot of audiobooks, too.

I'm with PQ on the count this year, and two of mine were coding books so I doubt they even count really.

I've said it before, Tom. You're a machine! Do you even sleep? :-)

Here's hoping you have a brilliant 2015.
