Do You Have A Reading List For The Year?

The Appetizer

The Appetizer

We love reading. Let me type that again: We. Love. Reading.

Most evenings you will find one or both of us with noses buried a book or magazine (either paper or electronic).

We love reading so much that Mario is part of's 2016 Reading Challenge. He successfully completed 2015's challenge, so he re-upped. He pledged to read 24 books this year. A good number of these books have been on his “when I get around to it” list. This is the year that he’s moving to spend more time reading and expanding his brain and less time just talking about it.
