2016 BooksThe Life of K: 2016 Books

2016 Books

After reading 51 books last year and over 60 in 2014, I knew I wanted to make a goal of reading 50 in 2016. Reading makes me happy. It's my escape, time to get out of my head, and what I do before bed most nights (and during the days once I'm into a really good book that I just can't put down).

Sometimes I think about all the books out there. And if I can read 50 a year there are still thousands (millions?) of books I will never read. What a thought! So I read and I read.

This is where I keep track of it all on top of in Goodreads and on the 50 Book Pledge website. I did a monthly round up last year on the blog and liked that format. I hope you did too.

As always (always!) I'm always up for a book recommendation or to chat about what you're reading. I read mostly fiction with some parenting, birth-related, and business books thrown in. I can't imagine this year being any different but who knows!
