The Year in Review

Can you believe it’s almost the end of 2016!  Although it seems the world has been put off its axis (politics/war/deaths); FIP had a great reading year. I feel like I broke away from my norms and reinvented my reading style. I learned so much about other people and learned to ponder about my own life.

Two books that impacted my thinking: 

The Autobiography of Malcom X by Alex Haley

You Learn by Living by Eleanor Roosevelt

A few books that had great stories to tell: 

The Golem and the Jinni by Helen Wecker

When We Collided by Emery Lord

A Man Called Ove by F. Backman
