My 2014 Reading List – Final Quarter

Goodreads goal for 2014:   100 books

I nailed the goal on November 17th and ended up with a total of 113 on the 31st.

Recap: The way I’ve been recounting my book readings the past couple of years means overly long posts (100+ books with comments?). For 2014, I’ve decided to break up the year into quarters.
