Books I've read since I started this blog:
Some I've loved, some I wished I never started, some are soul-piercing, others are mind-numbing, some are joy bringers, others are tear streamers, some I finish in a day, others I finish in two, most are inspiring, some are trying, many make me ponder, others inspire me to wander, most make me want to write and read more, more, here I go.
