2017 Reading List

For a variety of reasons, last year was my worst reading year for a number of years. After a disappointing 2015 of reading I had hoped to get back on track last year, but it ended up being worse. Oh well, it’s in the past now and I just have to move forward.

Once more, I have set my reading goal at 75 for the year. Hopefully 2017 will be the year I get back on track, as I have a ton of books that I want to read!
