As a part two to this post, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites from the past few months. Suggestions poured in after said post, which was awesome, and my mom mailed me a few books in a very heavy package. I also picked up a few when I went back home at the end of the year. The hit rate has been … Continue reading I finally have time to read…part 2
