    Wow. I'm gonna need to come back later and jot some of this down! Nicely done.

  2. I knew your list would be pretty hardcore, having seen your Goodreads posts throughout the year! I read about a book every two weeks--you averaged almost one book (or short) per day!

    Happy new reading year missy!


Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I appreciate it!
