My goal was to read more in 2018, which truly meant that my goal was to slow down and be more open in 2018. I am noticing that I read a lot more fiction this year than I usually do, and for the most part I really enjoyed the escape. I’m simply listing them in order of my liking, and giving a quick description of my two favorites. I would love to discuss any of the books with you if you have questions.
I’m Still Here by Austin Channing Brown – WOW. All of us should read this book with active listening skills – meaning, listening to learn and believing every word is true and honest. Powerful, powerful book.
