2013's Best Books

I think I’m going to start writing an annual blog post about my favorite books every year. Here’s this years run down. In case you are wondering I don’t actually have a memory capable of remembering all the books I’ve read this year and what I thought of them, but I’ve been logging my reading at GoodReads.com and that makes it easy.

Here they are in no particular order. I’m probably going to try to stick to one book per category.

Non-Fiction Politics: The Law by Frédéric Bastiat. One of the only real books I actually read this year (I “read” most books by listening to them). It’s short. It’s funny, and it’s full of thoughtful insights.

Non-Fiction Theology: Knowing God by J.I. Packer. A classic I had never read before. Lots of good stuff, I’m sure I’ll read it again.

Science Fiction: MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood. One of the best science fiction writers knocking another one out of the park, but it’s the 3rd in a series and you should read the other two books first.

There were lots of other good book I read this year, checkout my Good Reads profile if you want to see what I’ve been reading. If I have any regrets I wish I would have made time to finish a computer book or two and maybe read a bit more history. I also could have done with a little less science fiction, but it was a good year for me and books.
