As a self-diagnosed bibliophile, I thought I’d share my previous and current year’s book list. I read fiction and non-fiction – at least when not changing diapers and doing housework.

If you have a particular question about any of these books, I am happy to discuss; just leave a comment. (Items marked with an asterisk are those I began but did not complete, for whatever reason!)
