“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” – Jane Austen

Look at a book. A book is the right size to be a book. They’re solar-powered. If you drop them, they keep on being a book. You can find your place in microseconds. Books are really good at being books, and no matter what happens, books will survive. – Douglas Adams


2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge

In 2016, I read a lot. I read books I bought, books that were given to me as gifts, and books I was given for the purpose of reviewing. I read books on Kindle, brand new hardbacks, and paperbacks well-used and bought for a dime. I read new books, old books, famous books, and obscure ones. I read books on my To Be Read list… and more that weren’t.

I read a lot.

my results for the 2016 Goodreads Challenge, 83 of 75 books


If you want to know how I liked all those books, check out my master book reviews list.


2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge

This year?

This year I plan to read at least as many as I did in 2016.

my goal for the 2017 Goodreads Challenge is to read 75 books again


Your Call

What would you recommend I read this year? Was there a book that changed your life, opened you up to a new genre, or made you spitting mad? Is there a book that encompasses who you are as a person – or embodies an idea you want to fold into yourself?

Leave me a comment. I’d love to discuss those books with you!
