2014 Books

** Well, I gave up on listing my books read this year. I wasn’t reading very much, and blogging was overwhelming. I also merged my book blog back into my personal blog and said, Goodbye! to beyondbooks.ca. I read a total of 61 books in 2014. I hope to be able to find comfort in reading again for 2015. I’m getting there, though slowly. **

 

I made it to 60 books read out of my initial challenge of 100 in 2013. It was a rough year for me and reading took a back seat. Towards the end of the year I didn’t even really blog about ALL of the books, I just chose those that I wanted to write about. I think I’ll do the same for most of this year, too. Not sure. We’ll see. 😉
