I had a difficult time writing my #mustreadin2015 list this year. Strange, because I had no challenges blogging my 2014 list last year. You can find that list here.
I did not want to commit this year. The piles of books next to my bed are growing like weeds. How can I commit to any of them and not to others?
|These are a small portion of the stacks in my house, and most of these aren't on my lists. |
So, I am telling myself, "Self, these are the books you will definitely read. The others that you will also read (because there will be others), can just be added to the list as you go."
Be sure to check out Carrie Gelson's blog to see her list and many others!
Here is my list for 2015, in no particular order:
(And thank you to my nerdy husband T$ and nerdy friends Lesley, Jason, Michele, and even #strohreadsnation for encouraging me to stop procrastinating and just commit already.)

PS I also got married this past November (in a bookstore!), so I guess "commitment" is a theme. You can read about my little love story here.
