My annual list of books I read in the past year. In 2016 I read 97 books. I started something new this year, and some of the books were read out loud to my mom. My favorite books read this year "The Martian" and my re-reads of the Street Cat Bob books: "A Street Cat Named Bob," "The World According to Bob," and "A Gift from Bob." The story of James and Bob is beautiful. It's a true story that's still ongoing. James and Bob are still around.

As before the list of books I read (divided by genre) is under the cut. Books marked with a * were books I thought were particularly good. Books with (2) are re-reads, and books with (M) are books I read out loud to mom.
