Books I Read In 2016

It took me one year what I read in the previous years combined, but I'm not complaining. In fact, I'm rather pleased with my wide range and selections mostly. A few were re-reads, but most are new to me or ones I've meant to read for awhile or came up due to current events or new concerns. A few are reads about my career field choice---as I prepare and work towards graduate school in librarianship. So, take a look, read a few if you want.
