Reading List: 2014

My reading goal for the year was 50 books, and, not for the first time, I fell short. Even so, I can’t say I’m disappointed. In 2014 I became reacquainted with the amazing Margaret Atwood; I got to meet Cheryl Strayed, Veronica Roth, Chelsea Cain, Anne Sexton, Billy Collins, Orson Scott Card, Beth Kephart, Nora Ephron, David Sedaris, and the illustrious Mr. Richard Wilbur.
