Book Challenge

As a library technician, I innately read a lot of books in order to fulfill my reader’s advisory duties. Although I love reading, I also have a lot of other hobbies – reading often takes the back burner. I was given good advice, though, and I will pass it on: listen to audiobooks. It allows me to do two things at once. I often listen to audiobooks while I run which allows me to use my time efficiently. The audiobooks I listen to are also listed here. This is a growing list of the books I read, as I read them, since January 2012.
