May 2017 books on my list

May 2, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 8

These are the May 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 as the months go by. 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 find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed…. Read more »
