2016 Resolution 

I completed my mission in 2015 of reading 52 books, though just barely. I may or may not have read 10ish books in the month of December, whoops. Anyway because of that I’ve decided to do a round two year of 52 books rather than increasing the amount (maybe in 2017 I’ll feel ballsy enough to read 53). So a new year, a new list of books. After a couple days off with no reading, i’m ready to get shit done.

End of the year 2015 round up

After book 38 I was too far behind schedule and far to stressed to continue reading and writing about each book. So I nixed the writing aspect and just decided to just keep my head down and plow through the remaining 14 books. I finished book 52 just before 11pm New Year’s Eve, which left me a little time to freshen up and go out before midnight. Here is 2015’s final book list:
