Many people have been asking: “Are you continuing your book club for 2017?” So I want to address that first thing!

No, not exactly. I won’t be continuing my Book Club for 2017 the same way I have for 2016. That was a one time, 12 month intensive to re-read all of my most like changing books my 30th year of life.

BUT, there are a few things that I WILL continue in 2017:

– Endeavor to read 1 book / month
– Periscope every once a month to talk about the books I’m reading (turn notifications on to listen in!)
– Keep the #nancyrayreads instagram hashtag alive as a resource for all my reader friends
– Continue to blog my books lists! (Check out my 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016!)
– Invite anyone who wants to read along to join me, as always!

So no more emails, no more reading plans, no more official closed “Book Club.” But there will always be an open invitation for anyone who wants to join in with me as I’m reading any of my books! I’m so grateful for everyone who joined along with the Nancy Ray Book Club this past year. It was incredibly inspiring for me to re-read those books (especially when I’m not usually a fan of reading the same book twice)! I’ll keep this page up for anyone who wants to access that book list.

Now, without further ado…

Nancy’s 2017 Book list

I’m not going to set a particular month order to reading these books, but I did want to share 5 things I learned from the 2016 Nancy Ray Book Club:

1. Purchasing the book before the month begins makes all the difference.
2. Sticking to a 5 day / week reading plan works well for me.
3. Sharing on Periscope solidified the lessons learned and helped me articulate the life change I was experiencing. (Thank you for listening!)
4. Reading takes time, but it’s worth it.
5. Accountability goes a long way!

Great list, Nancy! As part of my Before I Turn 30 list this year, I’m setting out to read every book Elisabeth Elliot has written that I can – a couple are out of print/hard to find :)

The Nightingale is wonderful! I read All The Lights We Cannot See first & loved it. I wasn’t sure The Nightingale would live up to that one, but it was even better. I really hope you enjoy it, I have been recommending it to everyone.

We are so glad you are here!
