The Story-Reading Animal

“All you ever did was break me.” Miley Cyrus, Wrecking Ball

I read 24 books over the past 52 weeks. And, as usual, it’s hard to select a favorite one. I only read for pleasure so if I don’t like a book, I don’t finish it. If I do finish one, I found the experience quite enjoyable.


The Storytelling Animal by Jonathan Gottschall–which I added to my queue on an endorsement from Brain Pickings–was my most highlighted book of the year and this was my favorite line:

Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.

So, if I were to recommend a book I read this year, it would be that one.

These are the other reads from this year that I’d suggest to others

I read others but these are the ones that left a mark.
