Books, books & more books...

One of my favorite subjects! This will mostly be a place for "adult" books I'm reading, but I also thought it'd be a great place to put some of our family favorites. So, the long term goal is to have some lists of other books we have enjoyed as a family and maybe some of the ones I have stockpiled away for my grandchildren someday as my own children have outgrown them. Sometimes, I'll do a book review on one specific book but will list others here as I'm reading with fun or useful and maybe just insightful tips I've found. I hope you gain something useful and look forward to hearing about your favorite books!
