Now that the first quarter of 2016 is already behind us, it is time to post another book report. My goal this year is to read 50 books. I finished 13 in Q1, a little ahead of schedule. I shouldn’t be too smug though, since 2 of these 13 books were mostly done last year.
Here are the books I finished in the past three months:
- Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo
- 1Q84 Book 1 by Haruki Murakami
- The Chinese Dream: The Rise of the World’s Largest Middle Class and What It Means to You by Helen Wang
- Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life by C.S. Lewis
- 1Q84 Book 2 by Haruki Murakami
- Insomnia by Stephen King
- The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
- Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- Classic Christianity: Life’s Too Short to Miss the Real Thing by Bob George
- Finders Keepers by Stephen King
- A Higher Call: An Incredible True Story of Combat and Chivalry in the War-Torn Skies of World War II by Adam Makos & Larry Alexander
- China’s Megatrends: The 8 Pillars of a New Society by John Naisbitt & Doris Naisbitt
- To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway
It is quite a hodgepodge as usual. The books by Haruki Murakami and Stephen King are as good as can be expected; Kite Runner is a powerful book albeit sad; The Unbearable Lightness of Being has been on my to-read list for decades; A Higher Call tells an inspiring story; The two books on China have some good insights but are not among my favorites.
Keep reading… till the next report.
