  52. Picture books! (So I needed another book to get 52, which is my goal of a book a week. And I decided that I needed to start including picture books in this list, since sometimes I just don’t have time to read large books. I’ve read dozens of picture books this year. So they count for a book in themselves.)

I’ve placed stars next to the books I’d recommend; this doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the other books, however. For example, I can’t really recommend you go out and read Kant, but I liked it.
