Looking Back: Our Favorite Reads of 2015

Best of 2015

 

As we come to the end of another year, the Bookish Ladies decided to take a look back and choose a few of our favorite reads of 2015.

An advocate for literacy for more than 30 years, Mr. Burton and Reading Rainbow have launched a Kickstarter to fund a large scale attempt to improve childhood literacy rates. I’ve supported it not only because I’m a fan, but because I see this as a way to thank Mr. Burton and Reading Rainbow for all the joy they gave me and hopefully help them give that same gift to others. Maybe you can help too? I think it’s valuable–but you don’t have to take my word for it 🙂
