The year 2015 is coming to an end. I finished 11 books in the 4th quarter therefore exceeded my goal of reading 45 books this year with a total count of 50. Actually I was holding back from finishing more books this past week. I don’t want to read more than 50 books in a year so I am pushing them to the next year, which means I will likely finish many books in the first quarter of 2016. 🙂
I am one of the 20,600 or so people (as of now) who completed their 2015 reading challenge on Goodreads. Hopefully more people will read more books in 2016.
Here are the eleven 2015 Q4 books:
- The Internet of Things: How Smart TVs, Smart Cars, Smart Homes, and Smart Cities Are Changing the World by Michael Miller
- Three Fates by Nora Roberts
- The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements by Sam Kean
- The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom
- How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent Reading by Mortimer J. Adler & Charles Van Doren
- The Wisdom of Oz: Using Personal Accountability to Succeed in Everything You Do by Roger Connors & Tom Smith
- Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
- Night by Elie Wiesel
- Coma by Robin Cook
- How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World by Steven Johnson
- Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla: Connected by Fate by David J. Kent
The books in this list are so eclectic that it is difficult to come up with top suggestions. Almost all of them are good – seems I am getting better at picking books. The only one I don’t like as much is #6 which didn’t teach me anything new.
The 50 books I read in 2015 are from 50 different authors. I will stop following this one-book-per-author rule in 2016. Looking forward to another good reading year ahead! Book reports will be posted quarterly as usual. Please let me know if you would like to connect on Goodreads. Here are the earlier book lists for this year: Q1 Q2 Q3
