Books Read in 2014

After reading several bloggers' lists of books read in 2014, I decided to add my list.  Since most of my reading is done on my iPad with the Kindle app, it was easy to reconstruct the list.  Also, in 2014 I finally learned to use the Overdrive app to borrow e-books from our local library.  Easy, and best of all, free!

Here's my list.  You'll notice that when I find an author I like, I read as many of his/hers as I can get my hands on!  The titles in blue text were probably my favorites last year.  Which of these books have you read and liked/disliked?
