15 Books in 2015

***Made this into a post so that I can use the "What I'm Reading Page" for my 2016 list!***

I have decided to be intentional with reading books.

 If I have a list and a deadline I hope it will help me to get more into books than my iphone. If I have spare time I want to pick up a book rather than waste time scrolling through things that don't really matter much, and that I instantly forget about.
