Yes, I admit defeat. I got super charged about last year’s NPR 2014 book list. I thought I could handle over 250 titles in a year. Alas, I could not. I don’t even know whether having awesome speed reading capabilities and doing absolutely nothing else except reading would have helped me accomplish such a task. But I am still content. In an attempt to finish the list, I was introduced to some incredible books which, if left to my own devices, I would have never picked up. I met great authors and artists; learned about secret lives and viewed turmoil in a whole other level. I found my inner comic nerd and have stronger genre preferences. Thanks to NPR’s unbiased recommendations, I opened my world and mind to a fascinating bookworm’s journey. As I traveled the path, I was also introduced to a wonderful community of book bloggers and fellow bookworms. All in all, 2015 was a lot of fun.
For 2016, NPR has rolled out the Best Books of 2015. And boy am I excited about it! To continue my bookworm’s engagement this year, I will only pledge to be marveled at their picks and relay my enthusiasm to you. Nothing more. Nothing less. How about you? Are you as excited about the list? Which one will you read first? Tell me all about it!
Here’s to another year to stay in love with books.
