Today is the first day of my Christmas break for 2015, which means I have time to work on a blog post. It has been a long time in coming; thanks to Sarah (sarahlejeune.com) for all her professional expertise and advice.
As I think about what I would like to share, it is a list of 20 of my favorite reads from this past year.
For the first time in my life, I was in a book club this past year. I loved being in a book club. I read more than ever before. The other members introduced me to topics and genres that I had never considered. I am a better person as a result of that experience.
