    I'll try again. 2014 wasn't very successful. I read a lot of Dr. Seuss and Pete the Cat. haha. Time to read some more adult books again.

    I am working on a similar list I found on Pinterest. I am currently reading "I want to show you more" by Jamie Quatro. It is a book of short stories.

    Wow. I forgot my username for a minute there. Good thing entering "c" has a list of pop up words.

    2014 the goal was to read 12 books. I read ZERO. Read most of one, but finished it last week in 2015. Sad sad sad. I read a lot, but it's all short news articles on FB and twitter.

    Anyway - I finished the one I started last year and an almost done another whch would fit the list for short stories. And the one I finished was a Cdn author. 2015 I'm turning off the phone at night and reading words on paper.
