April 2017 books on my list

April 2017 books on my list

March 30, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 8

These are April 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 may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed…. Read more »

October books on my list

October books on my list

October 6, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the October books on my list. Each month I keep a list of books that interest me based on the author, synopsis, genre or sometimes just the cover! My favorite genres: Mysteries–especially police procedurals; Science Fiction–especially military science fiction and space opera; Fantasy–especially urban fantasy. I don’t buy all these books since I already have lots of books to read and I feel lucky if I get 10 books read each month. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of the books. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to interest them… Read more »

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 »
