Books

Starting in 2015, I decided to read 2 books a month for the duration of the year after realizing how very little I had read in 2014. Now, in 2017, I'm continuing on with that goal. If you want, you can follow along and see what I'm reading over at GoodReads or you can check out my book reviews below.
