This was the year that was ... reading during 2015 #2015Books #2015inReview

2015.05.26-DSC01399aI started off the year by finishing Under the Volcano, and then at the end of the year, took another trip to Mexico City!

Overall, there were a number of travel focused books with my trips to Amsterdam, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, New England, and New Orleans.

The main theme of the year was recapping the works of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and, because of my Africa trip, filled in with a little bit of Hemingway.

Also had a number of books and reports for work, and as a busman's holiday, read the fascinating story of Paul Otlet.

Closed out the year with the brilliant, On Photography, by Susan Sontag.
