Last of all, you could claim the caliber of books that I read wasn't that high. That maybe true, but I'm not ashamed. I didn't get a degree in Literature this year, and I also wasn't trying. I could say I wish I read more classics, but that isn't true, if I really wanted to I would have picked one up. I read for entertainment and fluff. My brain is racked to the max with caring for my family, beyond the Book of Mormon, I don't have the energy anything heavy. Which is why I read an embarrassing amount of Amish Christian Romance Novels this fall, with MBA classes, it was either that or crappy sitcoms with PG-13 jokes.
Anyway, these books in a way represent who I was this past year. They tell a story, of where I was in my life, and what I had to do. Even if its a story that you can't see.
