Lori | 406 comments This year I have been able to read more than 150 books, most of those were from the library and off my kindle. I hope to read more books off my actual book shelves next year.

I have the same issue Lori. The allure of the new books at the library is something that I can't resist. I've been trying to think of a challenge for 2016 to get some of the books I own read.
