For free time, books are in my top five. They sit after programming, but before exercise, videogames, and movies. I set a goal to read as more books this year than I did in any previous. And I did pretty well, passing my goal of 24, and reaching 38.

Note: I count textual and audio content as the same. I like to use the two to keep up my momentum.

Over the next couple days, I’ll be posting about my favorites from the past year. there is no set number or criterion. I want to share these books and my experience with them.
