One response to “Books I Read in 2014

  1. I always appreciate your book recommendations and reviews!

    I just right-clicked on a bunch of the links above, and they didn’t open. . . Well, they started to open, but then wouldn’t. I don’t know if it is my weird internet or if there is something with your link. . . not that you really want to deal with MORE tech stuff, but I thought I would let you know.

    Looking forward to your 2015 books!
