So I like to read. Before 2011, I had been doing a shabby job at actually finishing books. In 2010, I thought I was doing an okay job, until I realized I’d only managed to finish 15 or 16 books. Seriously, if GW Busch can manage to read 110 books while president, what’s my excuse?
So, in years since, I've committed to the Goodreads reading challenges, but haven't found time to read as much as I'd hoped. I've ready 35-40 books in years past, but this year, I’ve signed up for the Goodreads 2013 Challenge with a goal of only 28 books, mostly to allow for some dazzlingly long reads without worrying about my books-read-count dwindling.
Of those books, I’m going to try to keep a pretty equal count on men and women authors. I’ve given up on my effort to read a fair number of non-fiction books, much preferring fiction, but I'll try to read a few books written by people of other races, ethnicities, and nationalities, as well as books outside of my comfort zone (about war, for example). We’ll see how I do.
For your convenience, if you are so inclined, you can find my hasty comments about what I’ve read or have been reading here. If you have any suggestions on something I should read, feel free to leave a comment below.
