The Top 5 books I Read This Year
Note: These books didn't necessarily come out this year.
1. "Is That a Fish in Your Ear? Translation and the Meaning of Everything" by David Bellos
2. "The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives" by Leonard Mlodinow
3. "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain
4. "Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture" by Ellen Ruppel Shell
5. "I, Fatty" by Jerry Stahl
I didn't read nearly as many books this year as I usually do, but there's always next year.

I enjoyed it an as an introvert, I could relate to a good amount of what was said in the book. I've gotten to the point that I could fake extroversion in certain situations in order to function, and the whole process of introverts attempting to adapt to social situations is a major theme of the book.
