Looking to 2015: A Year in Reading

January 5, 2015

Here are all the books I aim to read throughout the coming year. I figure, considering the rate at which I read, I can get through between 60-65. I’ve purposely left space for recommendations that come throughout the year. Compiled this from GoodReads, my Evernote list of recommendations I collected throughout last year and tried to make it as diverse as possible, spanning most of the categories GoodReads lists.
