10 Books to Read

I am excited about this! NPR just published its list of the 10 best books of 2016. It has been a while since I have posted my thoughts about a book. I have still been reading, but lately it has been with little enthusiasm or direction, so I’m excited to dive into this list. I think it’s a great reading goal for 2017. And the list includes both Eleanor Roosevelt and The Boss, so count me in! I won’t tell you which book I’m starting with, but look for my first post in the next week or so.

  1. So I was getting ready to do a “Read What’s on your Shelf” challenge for 2017 because I’ve kind of been the same way about reading lately – and I have all these books on my shelf that I haven’t even read! But now I’m looking at this list and OMG! I totally want to ready like ALL of them! Can’t wait to see which you’re starting with!
