January 1, 2017

reading-2017

Happy New Year! As usual, one of my resolutions is to blog more regularly.

I have been compiling a 2017 must read / reread list. I have placed the books in alphabetical order by the author. Some are books that I have been recommended by others, some are books that I have previously enjoyed, some are books that I need to read for work (The new Graphic Novel Book Club.) and some are ones that have called out to me.
My goal is to try to read 50 books in 2017. I will add to this list as the year progresses. Please feel free to offer suggestions.
