Reading Totals for 2014

Here's (I think) all the books that I read in 2014. To be honest I got sick of it so I'm probably short some. If you're so so so interested look at my goodreads :) I took out travel books and cookbooks.I started to put the goodreads links in all of them but it was taking a really long time and making me hate my life so I stopped (sorry!)

  1. OMG! What a list! I hit 95 this year which I'm proud of but it didn't come close to my goal.

    1. For the kind of year that you've had I think 95 is totally impressive!

  2. Wowza! That list is huge! I just followed you on Twitter. Here's to a literary 2015!

    1. My secret is my hour long lunch break at work. You can do a lot of reading damage in that time!


Thank you so much for your comment. I'd love to talk books with you!
