2017 Reads

Reading is a big part of my life.  Actually it is a big part of our family's lives.  It was fun during the holidays to see us all at times with our noses stuck in a book.  We often read the same books which makes for fun discussions.  Often at the beginning of the year, I have all these goals like a list of books I want to read or maybe I will read more non fiction.  My prayer this year is that I will read the books that I need to read.  Time is limited.  I want my reading to count.  So here is my list of what I have read so far.  

Feel free to post in the comments any good books I should put on my to read list.  (Note: The links are affiliate links which means that if you use the link and end up buying the book that I get a few cents towards my reading habit at no extra cost to you.)
