Books To Read In 2019: A Guide

A quick peek at the pile of books on my nightstand would tell you that I failed at completing a lot of my “To-read” list last year.

One of my goals in 2019 is to read at least 2 books a month. I know, this is kind of weak in comparison to some. However, as I look at my stack of unread books, this seems like a pretty good place to start.

Reading is really stinking good for the soul. It’s no secret that we live in a technological world. Doing some activity here and there that doesn’t involve a screen is super relaxing, highly recommend it.

Ok, enough chit-chat, now onto the list.

Reading two books a month would mean reading 24 books in 2019, I’m going to add a few and hope to read more than 2 a month as the year goes on!
