Reading the Years of My Life
The Years of My Life project was created by the Cafe Society. The idea is to read a book (or more than one) from each year you have inhabited the planet. Some of the books I read are counting for more than one project. All links are to reviews on this blog site.
I’ll update the list with the titles of my chosen years and book titles as I make progress.
