Best Books I Read in 2014

Today is the last day of 2014. It is also the final day of my sabbatical which began after Labor Day. It has been a gift in more ways than I can count and will fuel some of my future posts. One benefit was the ability to read more books this year than I have in recent memory. I also tried to read books of different types including more fiction and biographies. Below are the best 25 books I read this year. They are listed in the order of personal benefit. Or you could say that they are ordered based on how much I liked them.  What were the best books you read in 2014?
