As the dead year is clasped by a dead December

And the four* last books of 2014, all of which I enjoyed extremely. And, as we all know, that’s the only thing that matters.

In 2014 I read 53 books; 27 of them in Hungarian, 16 in German and 10 in English. The one I liked the best was Walter M. Miller Jr.’s Lobgesang auf Leibowitz (A Canticle for Leibowitz). The one that has filled me with rage against all things religion was Die Hütte (The Shack) by William Paul Young.

December readings

Unlike my whole life the past years, I have now an exact plan for 2015 regarding reading. These are the books I was keeping separate since years but somehow I’ve just never got to them. But now! I am determined to Read All The Things! Plus the additional mysteries and detective novels, haha.

music for the last day of 2014 – Johann Sebastian Bach: Gottlob! nun geht das Jahr zu Ende, BWV 28

All I can say about 2014 is exactly what Erdmann Neumeister, the librettist of this cantata has already put into words in an oh-so-appropriate manner: thank God it’s over.
