I'm sitting in Gladstone's Library, a residential library established by the former British prime minister in Hawarden, Wales. There are comfortable chairs, and if I look out the right window I can see snow covered valleys bathed in winter sunlight. Jolie is next to me sketching the room. What better place to share the books I've read this year.

  • Getting Things Done, David Allen (reread)
  • Wild Cards: Aces High, George R. R. Martin, ed.
  • Solar Labyrinth: Exploring Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun, Robert Borski
  • The Right Nation: Why America is Different, John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge
  • Moon Over Soho, Ben Aaronovitch
  • Whispers Under Ground, Ben Aaronovitch
  • The Daylight War, Peter V. Brett
  • Will You Be My Facebook Friend, Tim Chester
  • Crazy Love, Francis Chan
  • Breakfast of Champions, Kurt Vonnegut (reread)
  • I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi
  • Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
  • Distrust that Particular Flavor, William Gibson
I realize I'm late to the party on this one, but *Anna Karenina* is an amazing book. Even the boring stuff about farming was a pleasure to read. The only thing I didn't like very much was the ending with Levin.
