2017

I read a lot of books.  Since so many other subscribers to this site are also big readers, I’ve decided to list out all the books I’ve read this year.  Not only that, but I’ll give a short little review of the books, maybe about 3-4 sentences.  I’ll keep updating this page with each book I finish as the year progresses.

Here’s my profile on GoodReads.  Feel free to friend me there.
