2017 Reading Challenge

I’m participating in the 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads. My goal for this year is 35 books. A few of these have been on my “to read” list for awhile, or I began to read them and had to put them aside.  I read from a variety of genres, but this year I’m focusing on classic literature, fiction, a few biographies, and of course, selections from my pastor for our church book club.  This list will be updated throughout the year.
