2017 Booklist


There were times last year when I wasn’t able to physically pick up a book but whenever I could pick up a book, I certainly did. I had always wanted to make it a habit of spending more time reading,  while I was on medical leave last year reading was my whole world, my escape and my reality. I hope you enjoy this long list of books I gratefully read in 2017.
