2017 Books Of Titans Rankings

2017 Rankings


I kept a running ranking as I read each of the 51 books from the 2017 Books of Titans reading list. Here is my final list. This is the list in order of most to least-enjoyable to me. It doesn’t necessarily reflect the overall quality of the book or its importance. Rather, these are the books that moved me, challenged me, or created great joy in me as I read them.
