Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.


While most people are posting their favorite books they read during the year or providing a mathematical breakdown of their reading, I neither have the energy or the inclination to do that. Instead, here is a list of all of the books I finished in 2015. Some were excellent. Some were boring. Others were just mediocre. All of them helped me learn a bit more about myself and about the big wide world. After all, isn’t that why we read?

Just for fun, here are my lists for the last five years:
