I’ve loved seeing so many friends post all the books they read in 2019! You are adding many more books to my list. To return the favor, I’ll add my 4th quarter readings. I got a little bit out of control with reading this quarter, apparently, but a lot of these I read to skill-up […]
Note: Our Relief Society does a little newsletter each month with a message. I was asked to write the message for December and I hemmed and hawed all of November about what to write. The night I needed to turn it in I still had no ideas, until this (the story below) happened, so it […]
It’s interesting how different phases of our life influence our reading. I definitely had a little more discretionary reading time with an international trip to and from Mongolia–especially when the in-flight entertainment was broken on the way back–and lots of driving time in the country, too.

Two years ago, I wrote a post about 5 Crazy Ways I’ve Been Set Up. Today, I add the companion post with ways I have set other people up, or in some cases, tried to set others up because I rarely succeed. But who cares about success rates in dating, right?
Quite a good little mix of books this time around. Some were enjoyable, some to explore a different genre or author, and some that deeply moved me. I thought I’d provide the skimmable version of the books I read first and then my reviews. Books in no particular order The Ocean at the End of […]
