Since it’s the time of year where many of us find ourselves with a little extra down time for reading, I thought I would share some of my favorites from 2016. 

If, like me, you spend a significant amount of time on a plane, having a good book ready to go is essential.  There were some real stand outs on my reading list this year – both fiction and nonfiction. The Genghis Kahn series (5 books) was extraordinary.  Since it’s the time of year where many of us find ourselves with a little extra down time for reading, I thought I would share some of my favorites from 2016.

  • The Khan Series: Genghis: Birth of an Empire, Genghis: Bones of the Hills, Genghis: Lords of the Bow, Khan: Empire of Silver, Conqueror (The Khan Dynasty) by Conn Iggulden
  • David & Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell
  • The Red Rising series by Pierce Brown
  • How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World by Stephen Johnson
