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.
The books I have chosen so far are some I have read and loved, some new books that have struck my fancy, some that were recommended, and some classics that I have been meaning to read for years. (I'm looking at you Anne Shirley.)
Here they are in no particular order, and I'll cross them off as I go! Some of them are already started and read to varying degrees, so that will help. I didn't want to be too ambitious! So we'll see how this goes. I will probably change my choices as I go, if some books come up that I am in the mood to read, or if I'm not feeling a certain book this year I will remove it. This is getting so particular and you probably give zero cares, but I'm enjoying it!
