The Best Things I Read in 2015


‘Tis the season for being overwhelmed with “best of” lists. Last year, I added to the list of lists with one of my own, of the readings that transformed my year.

Some of best things I read in 2015 covered life and how we live, tell, and write about it. A few covered the things we don’t often think about, and the rest filled the potpourri of my various interests. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.

A note on how I read: I swear by Pocket for saving, categorizing, reading, and sharing everything that doesn’t come in book form.
