Books of 2015

I tried to post this earlier with cute little graphics from Goodreads, but Goodreads and Blogger refused to play nice. Here's the cute infographic.

Books I read in 2015:

Be Your Own CFO
Eneas Africanus
West with the Night
The Making of a Marchioness
An Uncommon Soldier : The Civil War Letters of Sarah Rosetta Wakeman, alias Private Lyons Wakeman ...
I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats
One Thousand White Women
The 6-Figure Newsletter
Before He Wakes
The Sinister Pig
Mansfield Park
A Nice Derangement of Epitaphs
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
The Shape Shifter
Cure for the Common Life
Navajos Wear Nikes

I started reading, but didn’t finish:
24 Hours That Changed the World
Women, Work, and the Art of Savoir Faire
Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey

My favorites tended to nonfiction: West with the Night – grab-you-by-the-collar writing by pioneer aviatrix Beryl Markham; An Uncommon Soldier – letters home from a farm girl who passed as a man to join the Union Army; Be Your Own CFO – guide to personal finance by J.D. Roth; Before He Wakes – true crime based in my own county; The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks – balanced interweaving of science, historical biography and personal memoir; and Navajos Wear Nikes – memoir of a Pennsylvania boy who spent his adolescence on the reservation.
