Reading List

One of my personal goals, one that I believe is commendable for everyone is to be well read.  I’ve been reading since I was 5 and while the busyness of life has pulled me away from it for some time, my goal for 2016 is to get as far through this list as possible.

The books in bold are ones I have read through recently.  If I can get half of this list in bold by 2017 I will be stoked!
