The 2015 Book List

Following a tradition first establish on this blog on January 1st, 2012, I am posting a list of books that I've read during the year ending. Below is the list of 37 books I've read in 2015. Every book listed here was read as an e book, with nearly every one downloaded from Project Gutenberg.

As an aside, in Wednesday's post, I mentioned that I had reread Frankenstein not too, too long ago yet I could not find it on any of the book lists in my PC. It turns out, I found the book listed online among the books I read in 2011.

Oh, yeah..the photo used here..of the 37 books on the list, five were written by Wilkie Collins - a close friend of Charles Dickens.
