September books on my list

September books on my list

September 1, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the September books on my list. I keep a list of all the books that I might want to read and then each month take the books for that month to post on my blog. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–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. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too!… Read more »

April books on my list

March 31, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and sometimes a new author strikes my fancy. I don’t get all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read. And I’m trying to limit the new books I get each month to the ones I’m going to read soon. Right…that doesn’t always work…lol. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! I… Read more »
