2018 Reading List

*List updated with links to reviews for books read. Last updated 5/18/18

Christmas has past and the New Year is almost upon us. This week is a popular time for reflection, goal setting, and resolution making. Are you a New Year’s Resolution person? I’m not. However, one of my favorite bloggers has been talking a lot about her process of evaluating the past year and planning for the coming year. (The conversation about planning has been on Instagram story, not her blog.) Her process and enthusiasm for it inspired me to at least spend some time planning for 2018 in the hopes of being more productive in certain areas (like reading and, therefore, blogging). My goal? Read at least two books a month. How to achieve that goal? Make a book list of bloggable books to make it easier to pick.

Borrow My eBooks

Borrow My eBooksIt’s that time of year. Christmas shopping leaves many of us broke. Which can pose a problem for readers. With little money to spare and even less time available to stock up at the library, you may be on the search for something to read. Look no further. I’ve decided to make most of the lendable books on my kindle available to you. If you’ve never borrowed a Kindle book before, here’s how it works. I can send you an invitation to borrow one of my ebooks. You then have 7 days to accept that offer. After you accept, you have 14 days to read the book before it is automatically returned to me. Don’t have a kindle? No problem. Amazon offers a free reading app that can be downloaded to computers, tablets and smart phones.

This is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Just leave a comment stating which book you’d like to borrow, and I’ll send you the borrow invitation as soon as I have time. (The FREE books are, well, free … so you might as well just get your own copy to keep if you want one of them.)

As a side note, I haven’t had time to read many of these books. So I’m not recommending them. Just making them available to you. So use your own discretion, and let me know which books need to go highest on my to-read list when you’re through.

I hope you all have a lot of fun with this!

Update! (aka — New Books)

Spencer R. just sent me an email offering some of his ebooks to be lent out as well. What a fantastic idea! If you have ebooks you’re willing to share as well, use the contact form to let me know. Just make sure it’s part of the lending library program. If it is, you should see this when you go to the book page (except with your name instead of mine, of course).
