Books of 2013

Previous Lists: 20122011201020092008

Once again, I’m keeping a reading list here. The links I post here are to my so-called reviews on Goodreads. I keep a library of the books I actually own on LibraryThing. My goal again this year is 52 books. I would have upped it, but I’m taking a class this spring, and it’s eating up my usual reading time on my lunch hour. It’s going to be tough to make as it is. Wish me luck!
