In Lists: January 2017

The number of books that I read in January tends to be high. A large part of that comes from me sorting through the piles and finding books I had been meaning to finish, and putting them within easy reach. This year it seems to be less that than the fact I traveled quite a bit in January and with all the flights, plus time on the beach(!), I had plenty of time to escape into a number of good books.
