2016 TBR

This year, I am trying to focus on reading books I already own, with library books to fill in the ranks.  This is an evolving list;  I will add and remove books as needed.  I will surely be adding more Goodreads group reads as the year goes on and will definitely be adding more classics to the line-up, as well as additional graphic novels.
