The Bookshelf

My goal in 2016 was to read 50 books and I accomplished that by making it through a total of 59 books. I’ve decided to keep a running list of books I read, so I’ll think of this as my virtual bookshelf. If you have any comments or recommendations please reach out to me on twitter @TheBrianDeBelle  Or join me on Goodreads.
