Books Over TV

I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

Books read in January and February

An Untamed State - Roxane Gay Forbidden - Beverly Jenkins My Name Is Lucy Barton: A Novel - Elizabeth Strout The Guest Room: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian The Reluctant Duchess (Ladies of the Manor) - Roseanna M. White Bonjour Tristesse & A Certain Smile - Fran├žoise Sagan I'll See You in Paris: A Novel - Michelle Gable Playing the Part - Jen Turano

I only read 3 books in January and 5 in February. I'm pleased thus far. I lowered my goal this year to 50 from 100. This year I want to read without pressure. I don't want to choose books based upon size and not content. I don't want to feel pressure with something that is supposed to be an enjoyment for me.
