  1. Thanks for the recommendations. I’m trying to beef up my reading this year with more nonfiction (though I’m not sure this is well-planned since ill have a newborn in a few months!). I have Kisses for Katie on my nightstand, and I really want to read the Phil Vischer book. Several more appeal to me.

  2. I’ve heard good things about Kisses From Katie and Me, Myself, and Bob, but have such a TBR stack that I don’t know if I will ever get to them.

    My favorite non-fiction read last year was Not By Chance by Layton Talbert and Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand.
