2013: Books I Read – Or Something Along Those Lines…

Here’s my 2013 book list… It’s not complete. I didn’t keep up with it. I read a bunch of books I didn’t review [and therefore didn’t record]… But on this list is… 83 books. Which means I probably read at least 100. I know I read Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer twice… ;). I also read a bunch of manuscripts for friends that aren’t on this list – like Kristy Cambron’s upcoming release and one by Laurie Tomlinson, off the top of my head. I know there were others.

The Vast Majority of them were reviewed on the blog, but yeah, no links here. This year… one of my resolves is to do better…
