Books from 2014

On January 1, 2015, in Books, Culture, History, Literature, Philosophy, Politics, Theology, by Derrick G. Jeter

BooksBooks are one of the joys of life. And though it might be a bit of hyperbole, I heartily agree with Thomas Jefferson: “I cannot live without books.” I haven’t always been a reader, but I’m so grateful that I discovered them as a young adult. Now I’m trying to catch up for all the years lost. The following list represents the books I read in 2014, in the order that I read them.

If you’d like to discover all the books I’ve read, am reading, and hope to read please visit my Goodreads page and send me a friend request—I’d like to know what you’re reading.
