As of 12/17, I had read 127 books. I realized yesterday that my Goodreads total had been skewed because it somehow included some of the books my Husband read on Kindle. I had a little bit of a panic attack knowing that it would affect my “numbers” but I have chosen to breathe deeply and let it go…If you think this was something easy for one as literal minded as me, you would be wrong.

But back to favorites!
