Top Ten Non-Fiction Books 2016

Top Ten Non-Fiction Books 2016 

This was a near record year for my reading. I ended up with 272 books on my reading list and 268 on Goodreads (Goodreads does not allow you to count books that are reread). But before I get down to my top ten list let’s take a look at some statistics. First I started the years with a Catholic Reading List of 32 books, that list was ever expanding. And over the year I managed to read 73 Catholic books. 

272 Books Read
154 Fiction
118 Non-Fiction
73 Catholic
11 by Matthew Kelly
 7 by Fulton Sheen

So looking at those numbers it was very hard to narrow down to a top ten non-fiction reads this year! But here goes.

1. Resisting Happiness - Matthew Kelly
