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
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.
