Books Read in 2015

Not that anyone is asking: but I began to ask myself about my own reading habits this year. I am a reader–some might say a voracious reader.

So, I kept a log of the books read in 2015. Here they are. Most I enjoyed, some were not that good (e.g., Own the Room and Go Set A Watchman). However, I think I’d recommend most of these as worth reading (especially anything by N. T. Wright).

For what it’s worth, this represents 2015’s reading. Hopefully 2016’s list will be equally challenging and productive! If you are curious about any of these volumes, let me know!

Here’s to a future well read 2016!
