Books I read in 2014 / by Greg Gallinger

2014 is quickly approaching its close, which means it's time to take a look around at the empty chip bags and dust off the cat hair to reveal the piles of books I claim to have read over the last twelve months.

Though what I noticed this year is that the number of audiobooks outweighed the number of dead trees.

So I suppose this is in reality a list of the books I read and/or listened to throughout 2014.

I've also come to notice over the course of compiling these lists that I have little patience for bad literature. I rarely read through an entire book that I don't like, so te majority of the list is of books I quite enjoyed. Though there are a few stinkers among the otherwise satisfying list.

So here it is in alphabetical order.
