My Top Ten Books Of 2014
I attempted to integrate more classics into my 2014 reading list, along with business, fiction, historical non-fiction, health and science fiction. With such diverse genres, it's difficult to assemble my top 10 books of 2014, that said, here's my list.

Regarding Evidence That The Voynich Manuscript Was Written by Cathars in the Amazon Rainforest:
Scholars think that the Voynich was written somewhere in Europe but it is unknown by whom. The text of the Voynich is of no help in determining authorship since it has never been decoded, and some of the world's best cryptographers have tried. But as the old saying goes, "One picture is worth a thousand words," and the Voynich manuscript is packed full of pictures.
The Secret To True Success:
We have gifts, strengths, yearnings and longings unfulfilled. We are also adept at distracting ourselves from what we know that we have to do if life as we know it is going to change. Are you waiting for the perfect time to claim what is missing?
Night Machines by Kia Heavey:
"To sleep perchance to dream..." takes on new meaning in this engaging multi-genre novel that captures you and doesn't let you go. And, "Be careful what you wish for" is a mantra to keep in mind.
Book Review: Notorious Ninetten:
