    January ’18 wrap-up and February TBR

    Due to travel, I read a much larger number of ebooks than I normally do, but I also think I must have read them faster, because I seemed to tear through them, which was good as it gave me a pretty good head start on my 70 book aim for the year. Although Goodreads has been classifying each issue of…
