Books of 2014

Submitted by alycia on Thu, 01/01/2015 - 17:07

I didn't get anywhere close to meeting my reading goal in 2014. I set it at 65 books, and I read 38. I had a lot of significant life things that took up a lot of my extra time in the Spring and Summer this year, but really, I should have read more!

Here are the books I read in 2014, in reverse chronological order of when I read them, with those that I especially enjoyed starred:

  1. The Oral History Reader / Perks
  2. A Clash of Kings / Martin (Game of Thrones books make travel on planes and trains go tremendously fast, and there are so many pages it takes a long time to get through them. This note brought to you by my guilt about enjoying them!)
  3. *Assata: An Autobiography
  4. History of Oral History / Charlton
  5. A Game of Thrones / Martin
  6. Ofrenda / Perez
  7. Catching Stories: A Practical Guide to Oral History / DeBlasio
  8. *Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor / Barry
  9. Not That Kind of Girl / Dunham
  10. *An American Radical: A Political Prisoner in My Own Country / Rosenberg
  11. We / Zamyatin
  12. Gathering Blue / Lowry
  13. Gaza Writes Back: Short Stories from Young Writers in Gaza, Palestine / Alareer, ed.
  14. The Giver / Lowry
  15. Radical Museology / Bishop
  16. Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel / Ulnich
  17. Ralph Bunche: Model Negro or American Other? / Henry
  18. Aesop's Fables / Aesop
  19. The Story of Crass / Berger
  20. *Men Explain Things to Me / Solnit
  21. Dance the Eagle to Sleep / Piercy
  22. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings / Angelou
  23. Inferno / Myles
  24. *The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis / Davis
  25. Bark: Stories / Moore
  26. The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age / Taylor
  27. Attempting Normal / Maron
  28. Questioning Library Neutrality / Lewis, ed.
  29. Saga, Volume 3 / Vaughn
  30. Poor People and Library Services / Venturella, ed.
  31. Without a Net: Bridging the Digital Divide / West
  32. Social Justice Pedagogy Across the Curriculum: The Practice of Freedom / Chapman
  33. Saga, Volume 2 / Vaughn
  34. Saga, Volume 1 / Vaughn
  35. Open Access / Suber
  36. *The Left Hand of Darkness / Le Guin
  37. Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's / Robison
  38. *This is the Story of a Happy Marriage / Patchett (huh--didn't know when I read this that I'd be getting married in 2014!)
