Books I Read in 2016

Not a bad year for reading, but as I look at this list, not too many great reads, either.  Some of them were read for the “sake of reading,” trying to overcome a slump.   Lots of book club choices (starred here) and I’m glad that book club has become more intentional!  Here’s to more BETTER books in 2017!
