Book Shelf

I love to read. I'm a Kindle reader. I created this list by looking through my Amazon order history back through 2015. I am not a 'completist'. I finish less than half the books I start. Here are some books I liked enough to finish...or I intend to finish...or I'm glad I read some part of.
