A new year.
Lot of new books to read.
Lots of books to read that have been sitting on my shelf (or on my Kindle) for awhile that I haven't gotten to read yet.
I was happy to find #mustreadin2017.
I'm going with what some other bloggers have done. I'm choosing 12 books, which means that I will commit to reading one book a month. I always read more than one book a month, but they tend to be professional books. The books I'm putting on my list are books that are for me, some nonfiction and some fiction. I know that I can never read everything I want to read, so this will be a great place to start.
Check out There's a Book For That to read others' #mustreadin2017 lists.
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (bonus..I finished this last night, so I've already got one under my belt).
Reading right now: American Girls Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers by Nancy Jo Sales
The Connected Child by Karen B. Purvis and David R. Cross

I'm participating in a book club with Dr. Barbara Kiefer where we will meet to discuss books that received starred reviews for 2017. I'm really looking forward to this group and the great discussion.
