    Hooray Hooray! That is so awesome and inspiring! I made my goal of 50 this year! I don’t think we have even one book on our reading list that is the same this year. How do you decide what to read?

    Very nicely read. I am impressed with your literary prowess. I think I barely made 14 books this year. Not a good year for me. And I don’t have a baby to use as an excuse.
