Reading Log

To help myself keep track of what I am reading, I have started to compile this reading log. As I read (or reread) novels, collections, and craft books,  I will post them here. I may at some point start to review these books, but for now, my intention is just to keep a log of what I am currently reading or have completed reading since launching this site. As of January 1, 2015, I have created a separate list for my MFA reading list, since I am required to read 50 books during the progress of my MFA. That list is now first, and my historical reading between 2013 and 2014 is after.
