2016's book list

These are the books I read in 2016.  Library books are marked with an asterisk and I'm not going to bother putting them in any kind of order.  I just copied and pasted them from the posts where I wrote about them throughout the year (under the book list tag) and threw in one or two of the novels I read in December. 

It was a big year for Hillerman and how-tos.  I'm not sure what this year's reading list might look like.  I'm looking forward to finding out, though.
