Books 2016

Books 2016

This isn’t meant to be a blanket recommendation of these books, though I’ve found more than a few of them very enjoyable. It is simply a log of what I’ve read this year – good, bad, or otherwise. This year I’m adding some color coding as much for myself as anything, so I don’t keep accidentally picking up books by authors I can’t abide. Books in green are favorites – really good reads or somehow special and unique; books in red you couldn’t pay me to read again – unless you pay very well. 😉 Whatever is left in black are just average books.:)
