The Library

I have piles of unread books on my floor, all of which I'm determined to read. (Once completed, they'll go back on my bookshelf or off to a friend.) Maybe, someday, I'll finish them (if I ever stop buying and receiving new books). In 2011, I began adding book reviews to Melissa's Kitties as incentive to keep reading, as everyone should! 

On this page is the list of the books I've read (in order) so far since setting my goal. Click on the book titles to read my original book review blog post. If you want to connect, you can join me on Goodreads too.
