The Full List

2013 was quite a year for reading.  66 books – even more than I read last year when I was unemployed for 3 months of the year.  More non-fiction this year.

For 2014 I’m hoping to read less books.  I’m quite sure this year is going to bring some big life changes and I’m guessing there will be less time for reading.  So, I don’t want to put too much pressure on to hit the 52 book mark.  If I get there, great!
