As you can imagine, competition is fierce for what to read. I own too many books that need my attention. Here are the contender books/reading goals for the month of March:

I think that is enough to keep me busy. My goal is to read 16 books published before March 1, 2016 for this month. Some of these are old promised reviews, but most of them are just collecting dust on my shelf. Obviously, I will not get all of them read this month. (oh and I reserve the right to add to or delete any of these books for my goal this month)

I’ll be keeping this post updated by posting links to reviews done this month and removing books from graphic above…
