What We’ve Read – October 23rd Update

Tagged Under :

So I want a way to keep a lot of what we’ve read. I’ve been writing everything down and keeping track of our favorites and now I’m sharing them with you. It’s a long list so be prepared, but it’s all linked to Amazon (disclosure: affiliate links) in case something catches your eye. I started keeping this list in May/June timeframe but hopefully after this one I will update more regularly. Books that are our favorites have a star in front of them and books we own are bolded. Just for purposes of this list, I included only paper books we read – I didn’t include any e-books (mainly me) because I didn’t have a good system to keep track of them and I jump and stop and start all over the place with them.
