In 2014, I didn't read nearly as many books as I expected, mostly because I read a TON of Big Fat Books.  The Goldfinch, 1Q84, . . . And Ladies of the Club, the list goes on and on.  My favorite book of the year was The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, which should surprise no one.

Here's what I plan to read in 2015:
