The Best Books I Read in 2017

I read 38 books in 2017; extraordinary for me. I probably have not read this many in a year since I was in my 20’s when we had no phone and little television reception.

Most of my books I read on my Kindle and came to me by way of my Amazon prime membership or FreeBooksy

Of course I also read some “real” books. These were either gifts, loaners, or found at an exchange.

I’m not very good at writing reviews but I leave them anyway because I read reviews and I know they are important to authors.

The books I have listed are my four star reviewed books on Amazon. I don’t typically give out five stars because to me a five-star book is Of Mice and Men or The Great Gatsby, classics, and two of my all time favorites.
