My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Books Read in 2016

For the last two years I have made reading a priority and have kept track of the books I’ve read.  My goal for 2014 was 24 books – 2 a month. I ended up reading 30 books that year. For 2015 I made 30 books my goal and finished with 39 books read. For 2016, my goal will be 40 books.

As always, I will keep track of what I’ve read and when I finished each book here on this page.  Books in bold were particularly good reads.
