If you’re like me, reading was at the top of your list of resolutions for 2017. It’s actually the one resolution I don’t reserve for January but something I think about every.single.month. Maybe it’s because I used to be a teacher but I consider my books some of my most prized possessions and reading, my favorite pastime. If we’re friends, you’ve seen my bookshelf and can attest.

Maybe you even went as far as to create or join a book club? Maybe you joined the book of the month club? No? Just me? Either way, the intention was there, but maybe the time is not. Sometimes, deciding on a book keeps you from actually reading one. Together with my good friend Megan Smedsrud, we present our list of 8 books you absolutely must read, like really read, in 2017. This is one resolution you can and should keep. We can thank Amazon for that.
