Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 March 20: Books On My Spring TBR

Yes, some of these books have been on my upcoming-season TBR list before… Maybe this is their time, maybe not, but these are the books I hope to get around to reading over the next few months.  A few upcoming releases did make the list though.

Ten books that I might read this spring

  1. The Big Alpha in Town  This is a review book St. Martin’s Press offered me.  Three short shifter stores looked interesting so I accepted.
  2. Head On (Lock In, #2)  This is an ARC that I was turned down for but added it to the buy list at my library and have first shot at reading it once it comes in.
  3. Burn Bright (Alpha & Omega, #5; Mercy Thompson World - Complete, #15)  This book I plan on picking up over the weekend.  It is also another ARC I was turned down for.  That’s alright I usually end up reading them eventually…
  4. Blood Fury (Black Dagger Legacy, #3)  You’ve seen this before and yes I’ve not read it yet… Hopefully soon.
  5. Dragonsworn (Dark-Hunter, #28)  I’ve not read this one yet either.  This one might not make the cut this season either.  Still nervous to pick up another one of her titles, afraid I’m going to be disappointed.
  6. The Chosen (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #15)  This one I actually started last week!  Was hesitant to try this one too, but so far it has been alright.
  7. Travelling Eye (Tiger's Eye Mysteries, #1.5)  This is book 1.5 of a new-to-me shifter series that I tried recently.  I was approved for an arc and enjoyed it so much decided to buy the next two books which were really reasonable at B&N.
  8. Six Wakes  This has been sitting on my coffee table ever since it came in the mail.  Needed to order a second book to get free shipping last fall.
  9. The Thief (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #16)  This is an upcoming release and if I can get through book #6 and Book #4 I might pick this one up and be up-to-date.
  10. Blade of Darkness (Immortal Guardians, #7)  I did start this book but got distracted and decided to put it aside and start over.  Maybe I will sometime this spring.

Those are the titles I’m considering reading this spring.  What books are on your spring TBR?


Top Ten Tuesday: Well that’s surprising…

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 March 13: Books That Surprised Me (in a good or bad way)

For this week’s list, I’m not going to stick to either all good or all bad surprises.  I’m just going to select ten books that surprised me in some way and then tell you why.

Ten books that surprised me.

  1. Bottomland This was the All Iowa Reads book selection for 2017 and it is on the list because I’m actually surprised that I liked it.  Usually, I hate whatever book they pick for Iowans to read.  But this one was interesting, had a mystery, and wasn’t bogged down trying to be smarter than its readers.
  2. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf, #1) I had this book on my TBR list forever before reading it in 2016.  It is on this week’s list because while I did enjoy it I’m surprised I haven’t read the next books yet and have little to no interest in doing so.  Maybe I didn’t care for it as much as I thought…
  3. The Martian  This book is on the list because it surprised me by how freaking awesome it is!  I picked it up to review shortly before I got into my current science fiction kick so maybe I can attribute some of my more recent reads to this book.
  4. Fowl Language: The Struggle Is Real What surprised me about this book is how relatable it was for me.  I’m not a parent, never wanted to be a parent yet I found this book HILARIOUS.  Giggled my whole way through it.
  5. Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography I picked this title up for review when it was the only title that looked remotely interesting.  Mainly for its choose your own adventure format.  But I ended up reading it cover to cover (like a normal book) and loved reading about NPH’s life.
  6. The Diary of Adam and Eve what surprised me about this classic is that I enjoyed it.  I usually don’t.  It inspired me at the time to try other Twain works but I have yet to do so.  Still, I loved this story.
  7. The Goldfinch Another case of surprised I enjoyed it.  I was doing some book challenge where I needed to read a Pulitzer winner.
  8. The Shadows (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #13)  Fully expected to hate this one but ended up loving it as well.  It wiped the floor with my emotions.
  9. Instinct (Chronicles of Nick, #6) My least favorite book by my favorite author.  I truly did not like this story.
  10. Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia  This book I just found shocking.  To learn of what goes on in some of the families in Saudi Arabia blew my mind at the time.


Another week another list.  Feel free to share links to your surprising lists in the comments!

 March 6: Favorite Book Quotes


I know that we have done quotes before on a Top Ten Tuesday so this week I’m going to put a spin on the list.  I’m going to pick only quotes from one author.

Ten Darynda Jones Quotes

  1. “Never knock on death’s door. Ring the doorbell then run. He totally hates that.
    – T-shirt”
  2. “That took balls.”
    “Please,” I said with a snort, “that took ovaries. Of which I have two.”
  3. “Genius has its limitations.
    Insanity…not so much” -Bumper Sticker”
  4. “I may not look like much, but I’m an expert at pretending to be a ninja.”
  6. “How would you like your eggs?”
    I tried. I really did. But I glanced at his crotch and it came out anyway. “Fertilized?”
  9. “Insanity does NOT run in my family. It strolls through, takes its time, and gets to know everyone personally. —T-SHIRT”
  10. “Mistakes were made.
    Others were blamed.”

Many of those were the fun little quotes that she puts at the beginning of chapters.  Hope you enjoyed them and if you haven’t already, give her Charley Davidson series a try!

Top Ten Tuesday: Over and over and over again

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 February 27: Books I Could Re-read Forever

I used to not reread books then I took a look at my expanding home library and decided that if I was going to justify keeping all these books they had to be ones that I would be interested in rereading eventually.  That way my stacks are reserved for only those titles that mean the most to me.  So far this system has worked pretty well.  I only keep books I absolutely love and no longer feel guilty about spending money on books.  With my recent expansion into audiobooks, I have also started listening to titles I’ve previously read.  It is a great way to get a different perspective on a book and a lot of times the narrator brings a story to life.  Below are some of the titles and series I envision myself enjoying the rest of my life.

Ten books that plan to read over and over again.

  1. Fantasy Lover (Hunter Legends Series #1) The Dark Hunter Series is one of the longest series I own with over 40 different stories that make up the complete series (including all the novellas and spin-offs)  it is also one of my favorite series!  I’ve reread it once already (took three months) and I will most likely read it again someday.
  2. A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1) I love this trilogy and am super excited about Marcus’s book that is coming out soon!  I’ve read this one three times already.
  3. Redshirts This was the first book by Mr. Scalzi I read and while I’ve not read this one a second time yet I plan to eventually as it is a lovely tribute to the original Star Trek Series.
  4. The Martian I’ve not talked about this book in a while.  I’ve read it three times already and can see myself reading it many more.  It is probably my favorite stand-alone series.
  5. Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) This is a series I am working on reading again in audio format.  Have to say I’m falling in love with it all over again.
  6. First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) This is the other series I am working on in audio format and am waiting for book six to continue.
  7. Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1) This series is one I’m torn on. I wonder if I am getting tired of the series.  I’m not as excited about picking up the later books but love the spin-off series which feels more like the earlier ones in the Blackdagger Brotherhood series.
  8. A Quick Bite (Argeneau #1) This is my favorite light chick-lit paranormal romance that I read.  I have most if not all of the books in the series.  I hope to read them again someday even though it is quite long at over 20 books.
  9. Born of Night (The League: Nemesis Rising #1) Yep, Ms. Kenyon made my list twice.  I have found that this audiobook is offered through my library and might borrow it sometime when I am done with the other two rereads.
  10. Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) Chicagoland Vampires is a finished series and I am excited about the spin-off series.  I hadn’t thought about rereading it until this list and needed one more book or series.  But now that I think about it might be fun.  Maybe it is available in audiobook format.

Another week, another list.   What books do you plan to reread?

Top Ten Tuesday: Time to say good-bye.

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

February 20: Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

This might be a challenging list to work up this week.  I recently figured out how to weed books from my Goodreads account and did a major purge.  I went from something over 600 titles to-read to 282 titles.  I removed everything I was no longer interested in or recognized/remembered.  I kept mainly titles by authors I was familiar with or knew I wanted to read.  Some of the titles I removed are ones I own.  I’m no longer going to use Goodreads to prevent myself from buying a book I already own because recently I haven’t been using it while shopping.  My tastes have changed and I’m not picking up the same type of books that I used to.  I did keep my Star Trek books on the account because I do pick those up when I come across them even though I don’t seem to ever get around to reading them.  Anyway,  I’m sure I can scrounge up some titles to share this week.

Ten books that I simply lost interest in…

  1. Written in Red (The Others, #1)  This one caught my eye in a few blog reviews.  I put it on my list but didn’t go out to buy it and waited for it to cross my path.  Never did so I removed it from my to-read list.  If it ever crosses my path I might pick it up and read it.
  2. Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Jaz Parks, #1) Another one that I added a long time ago and it never crossed my path.  I’m going to remove it for now.
  3. Incarnate (Newsoul, #1) This book was one that I added when I was into YA titles, now that I’m over them I am going to remove this one from my to-read list.
  4. Wicked Nights (Castle of Dark Dreams #1) This is a case of I picked a book up cheap at a sale and it sat on my shelves for years.  I’m going to donate it someplace and maybe someone else will find time to read it.
  5. Vampire Kisses (Vampire Kisses, #1) This book is pretty much the same explanation as for the last book…
  6. Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble (Jolie Wilkins, #1) I tried this author once and just didn’t care for her book that much but had downloaded this title already from a free e-book offer.  I’m not going to delete it but I’m going to take it off my to-read list.
  7. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Added this one when I was in a what classics should I be reading phase.  I’m over reading to try to impress people.  Weeded
  8. Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1) Never got around to this title but it still looks interesting.  Might get to is as we have it in the library where I work but probably not.
  9. Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1) This book is another victim of my lost interest in YA… Also didn’t enjoy the movie that much.
  10. Never Let Me Go I suggested this title to my library but after some feedback from patrons, I’m not sure I’m going to read it.

There is my list for the week.  Are there any titles above that you loved?  Why not lobby for them in the comments.  Maybe they will make it back on to my reading list.


Top Ten Tuesday: Bittersweet Love

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

February 13: Love Freebie


This week I’m going to share some of the love stories that I’ve read that while beautiful had a bittersweet ending.  Sometimes love doesn’t walk off hand in hand into the sunset.  Here are some of my favorites.  Please note that there might be spoilers with some of these romances that end with one of the characters passing away or clues to how the couples end up together.  You have been warned.

Ten bittersweet romances…

  1. Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4)  This is book number four in the Chicagoland Vampires series the book where the series finally won me over.  Merit has accepted her new identity as a vampire and warmed up to Ethan just to have him killed off at the end of the book.  I about threw the book across the room but it hooked me for the series and it ended up being one of my favorites.
  2. The Gargoyle While this is a terribly dark story it is also a beautiful one about the love of two souls that have journeyed throughout time together in different life incarnations.
  3. Vampire, Interrupted (Argeneau #9) We spend most of this series with Marguerite, matchmaker extraordinaire, finding lifemates for her children and various other family members.  In book nine we learn the horrible past that Marguerite experienced being manipulated by her husband, who was not a lifemate, but someone who manipulated and controlled her every moment.  He has passed well before this series started but in this book, Marguerite finally gets a chance to be united with her lifemate.
  4. The Time Traveler's Wife I believe I cried for the last 50 pages or so of this story.  Why because he dies of course and then she spends the rest of her life waiting for one last moment with him.  Sorry, I basically spoiled this one for you.
  5. Reincarnation Blues A beautiful love story where two souls are not separated by death but life.
  6. Styxx (Dark-Hunter, #22) Ms. Kenyon is the queen of tortured heroes and she has yet to outdo what cooked up for Styxx.  Fear not it does have a happy ending.
  7. The Shadows (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #13)  I wasn’t sure I was going to like this story in the Blackdagger Brotherhood series because the Shadows were not my favorite characters.  But man this book wiped the floor with my emotions.  I can not believe how it ended.
  8. For a Few Demons More (The Hollows, #5) I’m not sure if this is the book where Kisten met his final death but it was just so tragic.  I loved Rachel and Kisten together so much that it was difficult for me to accept who Rachel eventually ends up with.
  9. The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy, #3) It isn’t the main characters, Dianna and Matthew, but Gallowglass’s unrequited love that earned this book a spot on the list.
  10. Allegiant (Divergent, #3) I struggled to find a tenth bittersweet love story for the list but decided to add this one to the list.  Pretty much everyone I know hated how this story ended but I thought it was pretty fitting.

There you have my list for the week.  Feel free to share links in the comments to your TTT list or your favorite bittersweet love story.  Happy Valentine’s Day.

Top Ten Tuesday: Still Waiting…

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 February 6: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read


This list should be easy, all I am going to do is head over to Goodreads and see which books have been on my want-to-read list longest.

Ten books that have been on my To-Read List the longest.

  1. If Angels Burn (Darkyn #1) Added 10/25/11: I know I picked this up used years ago apparently.  I am not sure I own it anymore as I’ve been weeding my to-read bookcase at home.  Frankly, I should probably remove this title as I don’t think I will ever get around to reading it…
  2. Full Moon Rising (Riley Jenson Guardian #1) Added 12/20/11:  I actually have the first few books in this series and have been meaning to try them soon.  I think I saw a review somewhere that renewed my interest.  Might not be this year but I will get to these eventually. To try at least.
  3. Dark Thirst (The Brethren, #1) Added 12/20/11: Another title that I will probably give up on and weed from my shelves at home.
  4. Bloodfever (Fever, #2) Added 2/12/12:  I did read the first book in this series but simply never picked up the second book.  I will probably need to reread number one, or maybe I can borrow the audiobook.  I will hold on to this book as I do want to give this series another chance.
  5. Crave (Fallen Angels, #2) Added 3/21/12:  While I enjoy the Blackdagger Brotherhood series and its spin-off I was not crazy about the Fallen Angels series.  I don’t think I will ever get around to reading book two.
  6. Demons Not Included (Night Tracker, #1) Added 3/13/12:  I had meant to read this book earlier it even sat on my nightstand for almost a year before I put it back on the shelves.  I’m not sure why I never got around to it but I will be keeping it around and hopefully feel like picking it up sometime.
  7. Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1) Added 11/19/12:  I’m torn about this series.  I have most if not all of the titles in the series but find myself not interested in romance books filled with sex and little plot anymore.  I know it has to do with shifting hormones now that I am in menopause.  I’m making assumptions here but a series about succubuses is bound to have tons of sex in it and I would hate to miss half the book as I tend to now skip those parts. Let me know if I’m wrong and this book is more plot than sex.
  8. Blood of the Wicked (Dark Mission, #1) Added 11/19/12: I think the reason that I haven’t gotten around to this book sooner as it is about witches and I am generally not a fan.  I tend to stick with my shifters and vampires.
  9. Skye's Trail (The Angelini, #1) Added 1/9/13:  I’m sure this book made in on my list when I was reading much racier titles.  Since I don’t own this one I will probably pull it from my Goodreads shelves.
  10. Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack, #1) Added 1/31/13:  Another erotic novel that is going to be weeded from my shelves…  If it crosses my path maybe I will read it but I have a feeling that my taste has simply changed too much.

Well, there you have my list for this week.  What books have you avoided reading the longest?

Top Ten Tuesday: Wow, I read that?!?

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 January 30: Books I Can’t Believe I Read

I tend to read the same type of books and don’t venture outside of my comfort zone very often.  So this week might be a bit of a challenge but I will try to find ten titles where either I’m surprised I picked it up or I’m shocked that I actually finished it because I’m not one to suffer through a book that isn’t working for me.

Ten books that I’m surprised I read.

  1. Pride and Prejudice  Every once in a while I get this crazy notion in my head that I should read something that is good for me.  Or that I feel I should up my reading ante and read a classic like this one so I too can be a reading snob… (Kidding, to all those that truly enjoy reading the classics or big lit).  I just need to own up that these books hold little interest for me and steer clear of them all together in order to avoid frustration.
  2. The Devil and Miss Prym (On the Seventh Day, #3) This book came upon a recommendation from my husband who has vastly different reading taste than I.  Sometimes I enjoy what he has read but most of the time not.  The reverse is true too, though, and he rarely enjoys titles that I recommend.
  3. The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)  This was another one of those cases of reading to better myself.  I figured I would try a fantasy classic this time and see if that worked better for me.  Nope.  I hated every minute of this book and ended up giving up 50 pages from the end.  I know it is supposed to be THEE iconic book that founded a genre but I found it slow and too male-centric.
  4. Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography  I’m not usually a NF reader but this book was offered through Blogging for Books and was the only title that looked remotely interesting I decided to give it a chance.  It was a lot of fun and since then I’ve read another biography, while that one was good to it wasn’t as fun as this choose your own adventure read by NPH.
  5. The Kite Runner This was another book recommendation from my husband.  This time I enjoyed the book but it was definitely not a typical read for me.  I tend to shy away from books that will make me sad, depressed, or angry and this title left me feeling all three.
  6. Strength in What Remains: A Journey of Remembrance and Forgiveness  This book is here to represent all the All Iowa Reads books that I typically don’t like…
  7. Legends of the Fire Spirits: Jinn and Genies from Arabia to Zanzibar I’m not going to go into why I read this book but I did.  It is a NF title dealing with the legends that surround the Jinn.
  8. Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wicked Years, #1)  I’m not so much surprised that I picked this title up more that I’m surprised I finished it.  Save yourself the grief just go see the musical, which is amazing!  The book, less so…
  9. The Goldfinch  Pulitzer prize-winning novels usually don’t make my reading list.  This one did in a year I was doing a book challenge.  Totally blown away by how much I enjoyed it.
  10. The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)  I’m surprised I read this one because I picked it up well past the point where I had given up YA books.  I just can’t relate to the age group anymore and I need to be able to relate to a character.  I hated every minute of this book.  The story just didn’t work for me and it ended up ending my YA reading.

Another week, another list.  What books are you shocked that you read?  Share in the comments or post a link to your list!

Top Ten Tuesday: Who are you again?

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

January 23: Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About

This very topic is the reason I started reviewing what I read.  I wanted to remember what I thought of books in different, but similar, series or authors I’ve tried before but didn’t like all that much.  I started writing a review to help out my memory and found that friends enjoyed them so I started a blog.  For this week’s list, I’m going to go through my four and five stars rated books and see which ones draw a blank.

Ten books that must have liked…

  1. Eighth Grade Bites (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, #1) I read this book sometime before 2010 and do not have a review for any of the books in the series.  I remember enjoying it and a general idea of its plot but not much else.
  2. Wildwood Dancing (Wildwood, #1) I remember being disappointed that the author only wrote two books in this series.  I remember more about the second title but this one only a tiny amount.  Gave it four stars though and read it sometime before 2010.
  3. Aurelia (Aurelia, #1) Yep, no clue.  The synopsis doesn’t even jog my memory on this one.  Another four-star rating and read in October 2011.
  4. Savor (Warm Delicacy, #1)  According to my review, I loved this one.  I remember having to wait forever for the last book to be released.  I did buy it but had forgotten so much of the first two books that I never finished the series.  Now I taste has changed so much that I am hesitant to go back and reread the series.
  5. For Love of an Angel (The Fallen Warriors #1) I loved these short stories but this is another case of waiting too long for next releases led to a loss of interest and then forgetting… This is one series that I might reread in order to finish mainly because they are quick reads.
  6. The Traveler (Fourth Realm, #1)  I almost feel bad about this one.  The previous books were read more than five years ago.  This title was an audiobook listen in 2016.  I did like it but I wonder if the fact that I listened to instead of reading it led to my foggy memories.
  7. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (Jessica, #1) Another case of I can remember the basic plot but not much else.  This was also another disappointment in that the author only wrote two books in the series.
  8. Fury (The Cure, #1) I remember being blown away by this book and enjoying it second too.  Then I had to wait… I ended up forgetting too much and never finished the series.  Dammit, I hate when that happens.
  9. The Charmer (Darklands, #1) I’ve mentioned this series before in my TTT lists most of the time it is about the cover art not matching the plot.  I don’t remember much about this title beyond it was an excellent read, one of the best by an indie author I’ve found.
  10. Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed,  #1) Another case of I feel bad about forgetting so much of this series.  I think it just blends into all the other vampire romances that I was into at the time.  Not enough stood out to leave a lasting impression.  It was a great series, however, and I still recommend it for paranormal fans.

That’s my list for this week.  I truly do feel bad about forgetting so much of what I’ve read.  Perhaps if I wait long enough I can simply enjoy these titles for the first time all over again…

Top Ten Tuesday: Reading Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

January 16: Bookish Resolutions/Goals

I’ve long given up trying to direct my reading life.  I’m simply a mood reader and when I put rules or expectations on my reading I simply end up stressed.  Reading should be fun and too many rules or goals squashes my reading pleasure.  Still, for participation purposes, I will try to come up with ten resolutions for my reading in 2018.

Ten Bookish Resolutions for 2018

  1. YouTube:  For the love of God step away from YouTube.  It is nothing but a huge time suck and I waste far too much time watching mindless, yet entertaining, vlogs.  I also watch the news but outside of those two hours a day I need to seriously put a block on that site.
  2. Goodreads Goal:  I hope to read ten more books than last year.  So even though I set my Goodreads goal at 52 I hope to actually read something like 98 books in total.
  3. Audiobooks: I want to continue to listen to audiobooks this year.  I do want to change my focus as far as audiobooks go and use it as a way to reread titles I have already enjoyed.
  4. Star Trek:  I have a tough time passing up Star Trek books when I find them while thrifting.  I have quite the collection built up and they are beginning to creep onto other shelves on my to-read bookcase.
  5. Weed More:  I would like to weed some of the titles I don’t plan to read anymore on my to-read shelves (physical and virtual).  I would also love to get my husband into our home library to go through his collection of titles.
  6. Use the Library More:  I work at a public library and haven’t checked out that many books over the past year instead focusing on reading titles I have at home.  I should try to borrow more books from my public library.
  7. Read more Non-Fiction:  I do occasionally read titles that are NF but not that often.  Maybe I should use that library card to find some NF titles that interest me.
  8.  Catch up on Series:  I have so many series that I follow and have fallen behind with.  I need to either own up and abandon them or get my butt in gear and read the titles that are already released.
  9. New Authors:  I’ve not been seeking out new authors to try and should.  Maybe once I month I could try to read a book by someone I’ve not read before.
  10. Get new glasses:  I’ve been blaming my decline in reading on needing bifocals for about two years now.  I need to make a freaking eye appointment and just get a pair of reading glasses already.

There is my list for this week what reading goals or resolutions do you have for 2018?
