Books of 2013

275 total books in 2013 – 115 of those audio, 83 others e-books, the rest (77) on paper
Genres? Sure! Fewer than 100 romances! (46 contemporary, 51 historical), 40 mysteries, 44 YA novels, 10 nonfiction (mostly humor), leaving 84 that can be called non-genre / literary fiction

The 68 that I posted about in this blog are in green. They’d be my favorites, basically, except that I don’t tend to post about books in a series unless I’ve just read the first one. And sometimes I wrote about a book because it was in a challenge or up for an award or was given to me in exchange for the promise of a review, but I generally only request titles I’ve been anticipating.

Wanna hear something funny? I resolved to read less in 2014, so as to, you know, write more or play more games with my family or whatever. And it’s January 5 today and I’ve finished 3 books and started 2 others. This is not an easy habit to break.
