#Read2017 – Literary Adventures in September and October

This has been a busy fall! We are getting ready to start traveling for our missions deputation, and I also just started another seminary class. Somehow I managed to complete 6 books for my #Read2017 challenge before that all really got going (several of which I’d already started earlier in the summer), plus a handful of easy […]
