Thanks to my friend Winslow's suggestion, I decided to post a list of all the books I read last year. Other than the first ten, which I picked as my favorites for the North Coast Journal, they're in no specific order. There might be a few I forgot. This year I'm going to make an effort to get off the new release treadmill and read more older stuff.
