Books I Read In 2013

Well, here is the Goodreads list of the books I read in 2013. 312 books running in at approximately 86,863 pages for the year.

Note: this doesn’t include Nathaniel Tower’s Nagging Wives, Foolish Husbands, which I read on July 8th. However, that is still prepublication so it isn’t on Goodreads yet and I don’t have the pub details so I can’t enter it either. I suppose even the title could change during the editing process, but I’m pretty sure Nate Tower will still be the author.

Anyway, here’s the list for 2013:
