Books I read in 2016

I do not keep up this blog as much I would like.  I did not want to document the books I read this year.  Most of them I read this summer and the last two weeks over snow days/Christmas break.  I started an associates of early childhood education program hence why I read very little this fall…other than textbooks.  I bolded the books that I enjoyed the most.  I also read two books to my 9 year old…who would rather be read to than read on his own.  I had hoped to read more to him…but reading out loud is much more time consuming than reading on your own.  Still important though.

My husband once told me I cannot count books I started before January 1st and finish after the New Year.  So the last book I read I finished today and I will not start the next one until January 1st.  Just to play fair.
