Lots of Reading in 2014!

Well, I read a lot in 2014- lots of books, as well as lots of types of books. I'm in the final pages of the thirty-fifth book I've read completely this year, and I'm likely to get one more in over this last week, which will put me at averaging three books per month. I'm listing them all here, in alphabetical order by author. The first list is the thirty-four books I've read completely; the second is the ten of which I've read significant portions but not finished entirely (mostly short stories, poetry, or reference). If you've read any of them and would like to talk about them, let me know- I'd love to discuss any of these with you, preferably over coffee or a beer!
