Thank you for some much inspiration. I think I will be using your list to help guide me this year. After the year we had with moving and pregnancy I managed to read 43 books.

How do you decide what to read next? I am forever seeking book recommendations but have exhausted my usual sources.

I was just thinking, I should try for a book a month in 2017...but before kids I used to read a book a day! Maybe I will make a book a week pledge too.
