Every time I read a book I add it to my database of "Books I've Read". I also give them a one word appraisal to prompt my memory. Thus far this year I have read 45 books, and of those 22 have gained an "excellent'. This is by far an unusual and personal best for any year.
I will review all the books individually but here is a list of my favorite reads in the last 6 months for those who need ideas about what to read next. Enjoy!
