2013 Reading List – A Progress Report

I pulled up the reading list I prepared in December 2012.  I hate to say it, but it is not looking so good in terms of the books I planned to read, although I am going to meet my goal this year in terms of the number of books read…  I think part of my problem is that I get distracted with new books I’ve uncovered or learned about (or purchased!) and I also worked through a list of requested books from the library.

I like the idea of identifying some books that I want to read in a given year, but I’m also finding that it is challenging to stick to my reading list as I hear about new books or receive book recommendations.  My 2013 reading list (below) includes a number of books currently sitting on my shelf that I have started feeling a bit guilty about not reading yet.  😉   I will have to start thinking about how many books I will want to include in a 2014 reading list.
