Feast of Books in 2015

This is my bibliography of the last six months.  Some of these books were dessert while others were hearty main courses that filled the soul and that I imagine will be revisited time and again as they are added to my lifelong rereading list.

I started this reading adventure feast during the 10 weeks of a summer sabbatical and made it through #21.  #21-#32 were read after full-time teaching and coaching began in earnest in August.  How did I find the time?

Where does the time go? I do not regularly watch TV save for binge watching episodes of a couple of series. I exercise for at least an hour most days of the week.  I am working scheduled, disciplined time for writing into my daily routine.  Spending time with my wife and our family are regular occurrences that don’t happen by accident though that happens too :).  At the same time, I am quite comfortable with solitude and need big doses of it to feel alive.  Recently, I began posting my “handcrafted poetry” on this blog.
