Bookends: January 2015

I’m not sure if I can sustain this pace as the year progresses, but at least I’ve started 2015 strong, reading-wise. And I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read, which makes it extra-awesome!

Here’s what I read in January:

The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield Fisher (Sisters Book Club January Selection)
