Dear Reader, I should add to my New Years Resolutions a plan to keep up with my GoodReads account. Because this year, I read quite a few books, and I should probably organize them…somehow. I read 34 books this year, which is WAY UP from the 7 I read in 2015, and that’s something to be proud of. I don’t have dates for when I read these books, but I started reading this year around April, and read pretty consistently after that. So let’s get into it:
So Black Friday is happening, and while you can purchase books at any time, and the start of the gift purchasing season is upon us. So here is a hopefully helpful guide to books to buy for your loved one this holiday season.
I only started reading books again in April, and so far this year, I’ve read 27. Since we’ve got about 4 months left of the year, I figured now was a good time to break down what I’ve been reading, why, and what’s next.
I recently sat down and listened to The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, checking it out on Hoopla, and finding myself desperately clawing for more time to listen to this book. This book, the debut work of Phaedra Patrick, tells the story of an old man who goes on an adventure after the untimely death of his wife. Sounds familiar?
