One of our main focuses on the road is reading more. One way we are doing this is listening to audiobooks while we drive. Another way is using the Brave Writer Program. Here are the books we’ve read this year and what we are reading now. Basically, it’s Evan’s Reading List for the year. We will continue to add to this list as we complete books. I’ve also linked to Amazon for each book. The links are affiliate links so if you buy the book through them we will get a few pennies without it affecting the cost to you at all.
