In 2016 I have read 148 books these are my choices for books of the year. I have no particular criteria. Generally if the book makes me think and stimulates good ideas or teaches me something I did not know before they make the list. The books reflect my eclectic interests. Often one book will stimulate my curiosity to look deeper into a topic like the Citizen Science book has done or it may stimulate me to read more of a particular author. I actually have a couple of more I will share before the new year.
