Jill’s 2015 Book List

I don’t have a specific numerical goal in mind for my 2015 reading, at least not right now.  But I’d really like to get caught up on my hardcover books; you know, the ones I only get to buy because I’ll read them before they come out in paperback.  Except I haven’t managed to do that for quite some time, and it annoys me.  I’d also like to start a personal reading challenge I came up with over two years ago: nonfiction books about food and eating, you know, like Fast Food Nation, Julie and Julia, that kind of thing.  Check back here to see what I’m up to.
