  1. I love your choices. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! See you in 2020.

  2. This reminds me how many books I haven’t gotten to this year. Thanks for the list. Happy Holidays.

  3. Pingback: MMGM for 12/23/19 | Always in the Middle…

  4. Great choices! My favorite read was “Song for a Whale,” and it does have a beautiful cover. I also loved the setting on “Sweet Home Alaska.” Amahl Unbound was sad, but I loved that the story was told. Haven’t read all that you chose. My funniest read was “Finding Orion” about the death of a grandfather and his quirky “funneral” and a treasure hunt of sorts. Happy Holidays.

  5. Nice list! Were all these books published in 2019? Or are they from a list of books you read this read?

  6. Happy Holidays, Greg. Enjoy the break!
