Monthly Recap

BRB December 2017 Update

Hope your holidays have been merry and bright and full of great reading material. Also, here’s to reaching and exceeding those 2017 reading goals. Even if you fell short, no matter, just keep on reading. Let’s set some new reading goals for the upcoming year. I am starting off the New Year with a list of books on the topic of vaccines. I will be reading and exploring various books on the issue as well as various points of view. I plan to write a review on each and then package them into a review compendium of sorts. It feels like an ambitious project but it’s one I have had my eye on for a while.
