40 Books for 2014
There are some 40 books in this list. It appears to be a rather imposing list. The stack of books I currently own on this list is sitting beside me.
They are teetering precariously beside my computer.
And more will be added, because not all of the book club novels have been chosen. We are waiting for a few more people to vote.

This year is a year of learning, growing, expanding my brain. Returning to life. Adulthood. Organization. I plan on living more. Loving better. Practicing art. For this reason, my book list leans heavily on non-fiction. While I LOVE escaping – I am discovering that this technique isn’t always helpful. Often my fiction reading serves as an addictive drug.
Have you ever felt that before?
