Top 10 15 Books of 2011
Okay. Let me tell you why I did a top fifteen list instead of a top ten list of books I have read in 2011. I read a lot of books in that time and I couldn’t decide which books to put on the list.
If you are confused about what some of these books are about and why I didn’t write a book review on it, here is your answer. I am a busy boy, and I have little time so I can’t write a book review on every book I have read. Anyway, here is my list of my top 15 favorite books I have read in 2011.
