QUIETLY REVIEWING BOOKS I HAVE READ

There has been some discussion on Twitter and Facebook about some "quiet" books, books that may or may not have flown in under the radar. I have read so many books this year (over 500). But, because of Paul Hankins, I have kept a list of them all month by month. So, I was able to go back today and look through those 12 lists (one still growing) and pull those books that still have me thinking. Some of them have received terrific reviews; some have not. Some have mixed reviews. But all of them have resonated with me and still are floating around making connections (and ladders) in my brain. So, I offer without comment (that is your task if you would like), the list. I was aiming for 10 or 20. It ended up being 50. I could winnow. But what if the book I eliminated is one you find here and nowhere else?

So, here goes:
