My friend Laurie, over at One Mom and a Blog, shared this awesome reading list printable that inspired me to create my own reading list! Click here to grab your copy! Now, my list is a little hefty and likely a bit unrealistic, considering I am just getting back into reading, but the truth is that I have already started or read parts of a few of these. (Maybe that is cheating! Ha!) I am GREAT at starting books but not so great at finishing them. Maybe the reward of a checkmark will give me the needed extra boost to push through! Ha! Click the titles to learn more about these books on Amazon.
