• A Wild Lass

Another Year of Books

Every year I post the list of books I read. While I don't add comments, I do separate them into a list of ones I finished and ones I didn't. Over the years I've learned to get rid of the guilt of not finishing books, so I've given myself permission not to finish books I may never have done before. That means the book may not be terrible, I may have just lost interest. If you wonder, just ask! Here is the link to my Goodreads account, too, so you can find a little more info about each of the books. This year I was happy to notice that one of the books I read also made it onto Obama's list of books from 2019.
