December 2014 reads

Wow!  I hit my goal!  I read 1005 books in 2014.  That's five more than the goal I set a year ago.  In December I was a little uncertain, as I was a few dozen books behind.  Then a ton of new picture books arrived.  Between that and spending several nights reading novels while the hubby was working, I was able to surpass my goal.  I am rather pleased with myself.

I read 119 books in December. That was more than any previous month in 2014.  Here are the titles.  As usual, if the title is in bold that means I rated it five stars on my Goodreads account.
