2017 reading list

We’re going to take another step off my usual Travel Photography theme today. I decided not to sign up for any reading challenges this year, like I did last year. I knew it would be a failure and I have enough other things to try not to fail at this year! Leading up to my trip, I did have a reading list I tried (but failed) to get through, but other than that, I knew I would be so busy this year that I wouldn’t get through a lot of books, and I just wanted to read what I wanted to read, man!

Nevertheless, there were a couple of things I wanted to continue to track long term.  After that will be the list of books I’ve read this year. They’ll link to Goodreads and might also link to a **review**.
