Best of 2016

Here’s my top 5 list of Books, Movies, and Sporting moments from 2016. The top five are in no particular order. I did end up reading about 50 books this year and did not go through the trouble of listing out everything. Most categories have a ‘missed’ section where I call out misses. I saw all the top sporting moments live on TV. Lastly, I might do a top 5 Music list in the next couple of days.
