Okay! I've been waiting to do this for months! If you don't like bragging, scroll on, but I'm about to mop the floor with BOOKS! Though not literally. That would be horrible. Last year was the best reading year I have ever had. Ahem. In 2014 I read The Screwtape Letters, The Great Gatsby, The Poisonwood Bible, Moby *** Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, Brave New World, Hesiod's Theogony, the Homeric Hymns, the Oresteian Trilogy, Vergil's Aeneid, The War of Art, Billy Budd, The Fountainhead, and 25 other books including works by Alice Munro, Plato, Maurice Druon, Neal Stephenson, J.R.R. Tolkien, Epictetus and Baha'u'llah. I am still working on The World of Ice and Fire, Atlas Shrugged, The Complete Hans Christian Andersen, and a few others. These books have kept me sane through a pretty difficult year. Reading has always been an important part of my life, but my relationship with books has really changed. Every page I turn is making me a better person.
