Booklist for 2019

I didn't make it to 100 books read this year.  In fact I read fewer than in 2018.

If you haven't read these I recommend you add them to your "to read" list for 2020.

#6 Becoming by Michele Obama

#30 Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield

#33 The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee

#41 The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton

#66 A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

# 76  Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell

But I have to say if a book was terrible it didn't make it on the list because I gave up on it.  So there are lots of good books on that list.

I have a book discussion on Monday of #77 After Anna and one on the 17th of a book I have yet to read.  Before reading that one I must finish Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout.

Happy reading in 2020.  It's something I try to do every day!
