So this is how I will be starting out the new year. All proud of myself for setting a blogging schedule and some actual drive to follow through it…then scrambling last minute for a review and realizing this baby has been sitting in my drafts for roughly 2 months. I’m obviously incredibly organized and no amount of new years will probably ever change that.

End of Year Survey – 2016

This is my second year taking part in the End of Year Survey hosted by Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner.

Classics Club: A Christmas Carol

Yay for me! Another Classics Club book off of the list! For those who aren’t familiar The Classics Club is a challenge to pick classics (at least 50) and read them all over the next 5 years.

The plan is to have my list of 50 all read by December 28, 2020.

I can only buy my dad some tools or a giftcard to guitar center so many times. Last year I think it was a shovel and a gift card, nothing says love like, “please shovel my car out every morning.” So here are some books that I think all dads would love as a gift (and some that were on his goodreads to-read list because we all need some help every once in awhile).
