2016 #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks

I've often participated (with absolutely no success) in Roof Beam Reader's annual (but no longer) TBR challenge. This year, instead, I was looking for something a little different -- and Andi's reading "movement" seemed just the thing. The goal is simple: read my own damn books (of which I own plenty). I'll keep track of what they are here in a simple list, with links to reviews if/where available:
