I started 50 Book Challenge at the end of last October. The idea is you read 50 books in a year. Apparently they named it pretty well. The only other real stipulation, and its more of a suggestion, is that the average length should be at least 300 pages.
So here are, in no particular order, a few of my favorite books of the last year, well since October anyway.
I, Claudius – My favorite professor in college was always talking about this one, and I had been meaning to read it for a long, long time. It is a great book, especially if you are interested in ancient Rome.
Till We Have Faces – Believe it or not, this was the first C.S. Lewis book I ever read. The imagery was amazing, and there is some serious food for thought. Writing an allegory without it coming off preachy can be tough, but this one really works.
