2016 Reads

New Year.  New Page.  Here is the list of non fiction books that I want to read this year.  It is amazing how many books I have on my kindle that I haven't read that look to be really good books.  May this year, I will do a better job of keeping up with the books I buy.   But on the other hand, sometimes it is hard to pass up a good deal on book by an author that you enjoy.  My ratings are 1 to 5 stars.  I seem to give a lot of three stars and rarely give a five star.   Even though I give a lot of three stars, I still consider those books good reads just not a book for everyone or maybe it was more of a stress relieving fun book.  Five stars are the cream of the crop, books I would read again and recommend to pretty much anyone.
