Booksie's Shelves, January 6, 2023

Art by RF Skia & Culpeo S. Fox

A new year is upon us and I'm optimistic about it.  I don't do resolutions except for reading ones.  My main resolution is to read mostly from my shelves and my Netgalley queue and I think that will be easy to do.  I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge at 150 this year.  Of course, books have arrived to swell the stacks.  I always ask for books for gifts and when we visited my sons, he sent me home with books he was getting rid of.  Here's what's come through the door:
