2015 was a big year. I graduated with my Master's in Library Science from The University of Pittsburgh. My then boyfriend and I moved from Pittsburgh to Keene, NH. I started my first full time job as the Library Director in Walpole, NH. And somehow, I read a lot of books. I knew that with the classes I was taking I'd have to read a lot, so my plan was 52 books, or a book a week. I managed to surpass that goal a bit and finished 58 books in 2015. These are not necessarily books published in 2015, just books I read that year.
