Hello friends! How are you? As we settle into the chill of December I wanted  to recap on the books I’ve read this year. and share some new ones I would like to cover. For those who know me well, you know that on some days, if all I have is a good cup of coffee, a comfortable chair and a good book, then I’m one happy camper!
