JoLene (trvl2mtns) | 17 comments Since I have over 1000 books that I own (DTB, audio and kindle) so I really need to focus on reading it down!

I'll do my stats by month.
I have had the following books selected for me to read:
The King of Lies by John Hart
Rose Daughter by Robin McKinley
Guns, Germs, and Steel : The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond (I hope I can find my copy of this --- I might have given it away ;-()

Welcome to the 2016 climbing crew! I've got over 1000 TBR books as well--good luck whittling the stacks down.
