I always love your annual book list! We read some of the same books (Marilla of Green Gables and Shepherds Abiding, for example), and I see books on your list that I want to read. I read 54 books this year (though I didn't count the Cozy Issue of Bella Grace, so make that 55!). I read through the 2019 book list posted on the Grace Livingston Hill website. (There is not yet one posted for 2020.) I enjoyed the Darling Dahlias series by Susan Wittig Albert (fictional stories set in the South during the Depression). The most meaningful or memorable non-fiction books I read in 2019 (besides the Bible, of course!) are The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker, Lightly by Francine Jay, Everybody Always by Bob Goff, and of course, Beauty Maker by my sweet daughter. :) Happy reading in 2020!
