Reading Year in Review - 2016
Classics that I loved: To Kill a Mockingbird, North and South
Classics that I expected to dislike, but enjoyed: The Great Gatsby, Age of Innocence
Best new (to me) author: Jamie Langston Turner for Winter Birds. One of the few Christian authors I can recommend.
Favorite non-fiction: Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies
Favorite Children's Lit: Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace
Books with the most long-term influence (that I keep quoting or using): Counterfeit Gods by Tim Keller, Technopoly by Postman, and An Approach to Extended Memorization of Scripture by Davis
It was my slowest year yet for the Classics Club Challenge, but I managed to check off five titles from my list: Gaskell's Cranford and North and South, The Great Gatsby, Pilgrim's Progress and To Kill a Mockingbird.
I managed to get in my 8 mysteries from the Cozy Mystery Challenge.
Goodreads has a fun app that shows all the covers of the books I read in 2016.
Looking forward to more good reading in 2017!
