2018 Reads

A new year.  A new list.  I don't have a formal list of books that I want to read, but I do want to read a few books that have been hanging around on my kindle for a while.  This year I have access to more paper books so am hoping to enjoy a book in hand more often than last year.  I have a shelf in my school room of potential reads ranging from favorite fiction authors to nonfiction that sounds intriguing.  (All links are affiliate links where I get a little something but it doesn't cost you anything extra.)
