Increase in Learning by David A. Bednar
42 books/9549 pages + 9 audiobooks/4603 would-be pages = 52 total books/14,359 total pages.
22 young-adult books (failing to keep up with my kids there)
1 commercial fiction
Hard to pick my top ten, but my some of my favorites were:
The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig
City of Thieves by David Benioff
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
Rawhide Down by Del Quentin Wilber
The Trouble with Poetry by Billy Collins
and the Harry Potter series on audio
My list isn't 100% accurate, I'm missing all the books I read in January somehow, and doubtless a few more that I forgot to record. Still, it was fun to see the breakdown.
I decided I could probably improve my shelf this year, and even came up with an idea for a new blog, readthe100.com, to share the adventure of reading acknowledged literature. I flaked out on this (I can't even keep up with the blogs I'm writing), but a far better writer than I took on the challenge, so you should check it out.
