49. The Boleyn King by Laura Anderson (ebook, interesting alt-history premise)
50. Marie Curie and Her Daughters: The Private Lives of Science's First Family by Shelley Emling (NF, interesting read that fills in the gap in Madam Curie's later years)
51. Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough (ebook, a good review of TR's family, but liked Morris' bios on TR better)

Not a bad year at 56 books even though I spent several months doing a lot of writing. My portion of ebooks is up to 41% (23 books) and read 7 ARC/Free books (12.5%).
