In addition to the list above, I also read many children's books and several selections from Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, such as Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Othello, and Macbeth. This was completed for Shakespeare class, and for American Literature I read various short stories, poems, and selections from such authors as Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Sarah Orne Jewett, Jonathan Edwards, Robert Frost, e. e. cummings, Robert Paine, and Jack London, just to name a few. There were also assigned readings for American History and other classes. 
As usual, what I read throughout the year added much to my life. I truly believe I might die without books. Praise God for them!
My goal for 2015 is to complete 50 books. I'm at 8 so far :)
