Okay, I could have waited until January to do this list, but just in case I could help any last-minute holiday shoppers, I decided to put it up now. This list is by no means comprehensive, and it’s completely subjective. That being said, I think you’ll find some good stuff here.
If you want to chime in with any agreements or disagreements, or if you have other favorite books from this year that you’d like to share, please do so in the comments!
