Currently Reading

Here you'll find all of the books I've read during my most recent Day Zero Project. I've got a few different categories of reading goals, so that's how you'll see them broken out. If I took time to write a blog post about a book, the title will be hyperlinked. Books are listed chronologically within each category by date read (in parenthesis). To see what else is on my to-read list, click on the Goodreads link in the sidebar!

Note: I count books in more than one category. My challenge, my rules.

Happy reading!
