How lovely that you got to read so much Wendell Berry!

I noticed the Wendell Berry too! What inspires me about your reading is the nonfiction choices (like economics and politics, sociology and academic studies). What I love about your book list from the year is the common book loves we have.

Book favorite! I notice that we've read several of the same ones this year. Oh, and the picture you added is one I used on a bookmark for my husband along with this poem by Arnold Lobel:

Books to the ceiling
Books to the sky
My piles of books are a mile high
How I love them
How I need them
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them
