2019 Book list

Once again, I am publishing my reading list from the past year.

It’s been a good year and I’ve learned a lot.

As a family, we’ve been working through the Harry Potter series, so that has eaten up a lot of reading time. Even with that slight distraction, I’ve read a lot of good material. A few key highlights include “Say Nothing”, “Talking to Strangers” and “Code Girls”.
