Books I’m (Still) in the Middle of Right Now

if i finished every book that i started i’d probably be a lot smarter. i am an expert at starting books… finishing them is a different story.  here are my top 3 books that i am still a long ways from finishing, but totally digging right now.

  3. called, not employed
  4. grounded, not distracted
  5. in community, not alone
  6. civil, not divisive
