2015 Books


The picture above is of the shelf in my office of the books that I want to read about work-related things ASAP!  The shelf is always full!  And the list of books that I want to read for fun is even more full!

I like keeping a list of the books I read each year.  Mainly because it’s good to look back at so I don’t re-buy books I’ve already read (horrible memory!), but also just because it’s fun to look back at the end of the year, think about what I learned, the memories associated with books, etc.

So without further ado, here is my list so far with my rating for each book (1 = don’t ever read this!, 10 = best book ever! Go buy it now!).  I will come back and update the list as I read more throughout the year.
