Let’s Talk About Reading

I read all the things.

I read comics, young adult fiction (when it is good – and there is a lot of good out there), sci-fi, mystery, literary, blah, blah, blah.

Look, a book is a book is a book.  Odds are if you put a non-romance book in front of me, I’ll read it.

 

Here’s what I read in December (2016):
