March 2017 books on my list

March 2017 books on my list

March 2, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 6

These are the March books on my list. I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of the books. I don’t buy all these books–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. March 7… Read more »
