The Six in Six – 2017 Edition

6in6The Six in Six is a meme created by Jo at The Book Jotter  and is in it’s sixth year.

The idea being that as the end of June approaches and we are then halfway through the year,  let us share the books we have read in those first 6 months. In fact let’s share 6 books in 6 categories, or if time is of the essence then simply share just 6 books. Whatever combination works for you as long as it involves 6 books. Of course the same book can obviously feature in more than one category.
