Welcome 2018 to a year of more growing and exploring!

Joining my North BFF in a reading challenge. Tiffany Murphy has challenged herself to read 52 books this year. Sounded like a great idea. Reading, journaling, and trying new things keep your mind sharp. I usually like to complain that I don’t have time to do anything other than, sleep, eat and work. However, that pack of lies was disbanded when I started to keep track of my Netflix binges. So, instead of letting Netflix or Amazon Prime entice me with their glorious bounty of filmmaking,  I have decided to join my friend in her challenge and read as much as I can this year!

I plan on reading anything from self-help to business development to excel master books and even the nonfiction suspense or dystopian pop-culture frenzy of the month.

Do you have any good reads that I should add to my list!? Please let me know in the comments.
