I don’t think I’ve ever read as much as I have this past year, even when I was being bribed with stickers and personal pan pizza’s from Pizza Hut.

I didn’t have some New Year’s resolution last year to read more. The reason I read so much more this last year was thanks to an amazing iPhone App, Voice Dream. I highly recommend it to everyone. It will change the way you read listen to books.

Having read all of these books, I’m desperately seeking to add to my queue for 2014. If you have any recommendations please, please send them over!

Migration Note (06/2024)I used Chat GPT to generate links for each of the books. I didn't specify where the links should go, nor have I clicked on each one to validate that they are correct.
