While I don’t expect to make up for that, I would like to finish the year with 84 books read – so that I am {Read More}

I’ve been trying to pick up more books I’m dying to read and can’t put down (which often means fiction), and that seems to be working to get me reading more. Hey, whatever works! {Read More}
