Favorite Reads of 2015

This year I read a lot. I think the 3 hour daily commute I was doing helped a bit (since we moved it's dropped to 30 or 40 minutes each way!). I went into my Kindle history and pulled about 30 books for this post before I realized that may have been, you know, too many. I narrowed it down to 12 and separated them into categories to help with your perusing. Sadly, unlike last year, there wasn't much in the way of summer camp stories ;)
