2013 Books

New year, new list of books to keep track of. I didn’t reach my 100 book goal for 2012 (originally 125, but then changed in the fall) as I only read 95 books. For a long time I was very disappointed by this, but then I started thinking about how much of my time in the fall was spent on reading a textbook, readings for a class and reading for my research paper. So I guess if I didn’t finish 100 real books, I’m ok with that. After all, 95 books read in a year really isn’t all that little. ūüėČ

I said I wouldn’t do the Goodreads challenge in 2013, but then I logged in on January 1st and there it was staring at me with a little blank box for my number. Taunting. Peer pressuring me. So I filled it in. I am hoping to get to 100 books in 2013, but I am also going to just read what I feel like and when I feel like it. I don’t foresee myself accepting any review books this year, not ones I’m desperate for. I think I will try to plough through as many of my OWN books as possible this year.
