Anyway, most everyone wants to read more than they currently do. I figure if I keep a log of what I've read (and audio-read), maybe that'll inspire me to choose quality literature in lieu of YouTube videos.
- Book Title by Author (hardcover/paperback/audiobook, month finished)
- Opinion and maybe brief synopsis
Make sense? Alright, here is the list, which will be updated upon book completion (newest on top).
Oh, and I'm going to bold books that I especially recommend, so they're easier to spot.
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (hardcover, )
- A Good Walk Spoiled by John Feinstein (paperback, )
- Born to Run by Christopher McDougall (paperback, Dec 2012)
- I'm a runner, and I'd heard about this book for a while, but I finally sat down and read it. Great story, and the scientific reasoning was very interesting. If you're a runner, it's a must read!
- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (hardcover, Mar 2012)
- Third and final installment in Hunger Games trilogy. I'm content with how the saga ended, even if it seemed a little rushed and lacking full-enough explanations. If you read the prior two, you have to read this one to get resolution, and I'm glad I did.
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (hardcover, Mar 2012)
- The second book in the Hunger Games series was still good, but I didn't feel like the portion with the actual fighting was on par with the first book's. Hoping the third book will redeem the series and pull it all together for a satisfying conclusion.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (paperback, Mar 2012)
- Devoured this one. Wanted to read it before seeing the movie, and I did it in two nights. A must read if you haven't already.
- Red and Me by Bill Russell (audiobook, Jan 2012)
- Okay. Interesting stories about Boston Celtics legends Bill Russell and Red Auerbach, but not a terribly stimulating writing style. Periodic warm fuzzies.
- The Sunset Limited by Cormac McCarthy (audiobook, Jan 2012)
- Excellent. Great ideological battle between an evangelical Christian and the atheist he's just saved from committing suicide. Highly recommended.
- Moneyball by Michael Lewis (paperback, Jan 2012)
- Liked. Surprisingly heavy on statistical theory and light on action, but great for a baseball nerd like me. I'll never look at baseball stats the same way again.
