First Book of the Year 2017

I realize that this is early, but due to the fact that I don't know how long I'll be sleeping for or what condition I will be in once I do wake up, I figure I will get it out of the way now. So for my first book of the year, I will be reading Winter Storm by Elin Hilderbrand.  I tried to read it last New Year's, but due to working late on New Year's Eve, I was bone tired when I woke up. And so no reading didn't happen that day. So I hope you all have a wonderful new year and happy reading!

2017 Reading Plans

I can hardly believe it, but the year once again is at a close and plans for the coming year are being made, at least some plans.  I have some reading plans and non-reading plans, but I won't bore you with the non-reading plans because they are the usual one that most people make. So I will let you know of the reading plans that I have. Here is what I plan to do reading wise: try to read more diversely and read more authors that are non-white read outside of my usual genres. read the books that are taking up space in my bedroom and other places donate books that I know I am not going to read if I take out books from the library, if I haven't opened up the book in the 2-3 weeks that I have had it, I will take it back try to focus on one or two books at time.  I find that if I have more than 2 books going on, I seem to lose focus on one of them and it becomes hard to get back into that book. be more willing to not finish a book that I am not getting or is not gelli
