2013: What I read

I’ve been keeping track of every book I finish reading for nearly a decade now. I didn’t manage to finish any books during the last 3 months of 2013, which is my longest period so far. Because of this, I was under the false illusion that 2013 had been a really poor year as far as reading goes. Turns out I read nearly 50 books. It doesn’t quite match my record of 67 books in 2012, but it’s not a bad list.
