New Year, New Reads!

What Books Are On Your 2014 To-read List?

books for 2014

Are you looking for great reading suggestions for 2014? I asked my social media friends to share the first book they planned to read this year. This post highlights 25 of the many Twitter responses. I will share a list of the Facebook comments in another blog post. I’m sure this eclectic list will inspire some trips to the bookstore or a few eReader feeding sessions! I received a new Kobo Arc 7HD from my hubby for Christmas and I’ve loaded a few of these suggestions already. Did you know you can "try before you buy" with Kobo? True story! For many books you can select "preview" and read the first few chapters for free! So, check out the books below but before you go, be sure to note the #WhatchaReading Twitter chat details.
