I hope this list ends up being comprehensive but I’m really just looking at my book shelf and trying to remember what I read, if for work or pleasure. Of this list I know there are some books i read in full for different courses in the past year that aren’t here because they were from a library somewhere.¬† So as best as i could and in no particular order, aside from how they sit on my bookshelves, here it is!

All nearly 5000 pages worth (not counting numerous articles both news, journal, and blog).

*books were only read in majority

From this list I think it is fairly obvious that I’m going to a Theological seminary. For at least the next couple years the list will continue to be stacked the way but I do hope to incorporate more secular reading into the mix as well. I need to rediscover what types of books I like to read for fun.

Hat-tip to Jamie (my future sister in law) for the idea since she has done this a few times now.
