My 2013 Reading List

This year I've decided to be more deliberate about what I want to read so I took the time to look over recommendations from Amazon, Crystal at Money Saving Mom and what I've already got loaded on my Kindle. I tend to "buy" at least 5 Kindle books a week because whenever something that looks even slightly interesting becomes free I snap it up- I'm up to nearly 400 books.

I picked out 12 non-fiction and 14 fiction books that I'm planning to read in 2013. I predict most of the fiction will be no problem though I'm not familiar with some of the authors. I'll certainly TRY to read each book but if it's a stinker I'm not going to finish it just for the sake of crossing it off my list.

The non-fiction books will be tougher for me. I'm great at starting them but not at finishing.

  1. great pics! I want to read Love Does and Dark Places, as well. Did you know Gillian Flynn is from KC? It'll be fun to read along with you! :)

  2. I'm so thankful I checked-in here today. You certainly have lots to keep you busy through the year. In particular, Unglued is exactly what I need right now. Actually, I probably could have used it 15 years ago. I'm sick of emotions and would love a better handle on them.

  3. Gillian Flynn is on my read list. I have not read anythig of hers yet and want to start with sharp objects.

    Here is what I read last year and the start of this years reading.
