It's that time of the year.
No, I'm not talking about Christmas; I'm talking about the time of year where I take a close look at what I read last year.
I read a grand total of 397 books. Pretty amazing. But, before you get too amazed, consider that 250 were children's fiction picture books.
So let's look at the remaining 147 books for a minute:
Conclusion: This was a nonfiction year for me.
Add the 250 children's fiction picture books back in, please. Add in the additional 43 other children's books read.
Conclusion: This was a year for reading children's books.
Finally, let's separate all the books by some of my favorite genres.
Final Conclusion: I read a lot of children's books and nonfiction this year, but I didn't read much of my other favorites. I'd really like to read more literary fiction, more classics, and more travel in 2016.
Finally, without further ado, here is the list of the books I loved reading this year...
Now I'm off to visit your blog. Please, please share your thoughts about any of these books or offer suggestions for me for 2016.
