I have to give myself a major high 5. Unlike last year, I rocked my reading this year. 63 books.
I’m listing my favorites by category, with the entire list at the bottom. And out of laziness simplicity, I have only summarized my 2 favorite books of the year. All others you can follow the links to read about on Amazon.
Books related to special needs, Speech Pathology, etc
The Brain that Changes Itself– Tied for all time favorite book of the year! Story after story about the plasticity of the brain and ways that we and others can change our brains!
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
What the Dog Saw
Unbroken-Tied as best book of the year for me. The true and amazing story of a man ready to give up time after time with his horrid life circumstances (shot down during WWII, prisoner in Japanense internment camp, etc.), yet ends up as a changed man and evangelist.
Half the Sky
Born to Run
The Year of Living Biblically
How did I read so many books? Mostly, this accomplishment was from the shocking realization that I can listen to an audiobook while doing P90X. ((Gasp!))
