Any way you slice it, I hit my reading goal for 2013 of 18 books! I say that because Goodreads, of course, counts by individual book, making my total 23. I, on the other hand, lump together easily read fiction series that I tear through, for example, the "Divergent" series from Veronica Roth. So my count for 2013 is actually 18, 9 fiction and 9 nonfiction.
I list from most recent back, and my favorites were 1, 3, 7, 8, 10, 13, 18
5. 22 Things a Woman With Asperger's Syndrome Wants Her Partner to Know by Rudy Simone
6. Wait: The Art and Science of Delay by Frank Partnoy
7. Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein
8. The Auslander Files by Michael Patrick Sullivan
9. To Have And To Code by Deborah Geary
10. The Witchlight Series by Deborah Geary
12. The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston
13. Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
14. Fly By Wire by Ward Larsen
15. Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions by Lori Deschene
16. Peter Pan by J.M Barrie
17. Women by Charles Bukowski
This was a year with some GREAT books. In particular, "Man's Search for Meaning" is amazing, and I'm so gratified that I read it. It's hard to believe I'd never heard of it before this year. It's one of those books you read and immediately want to share it with everyone in the whole world.
As for 2014, I am off and running - 2 books down already, 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction. Already checked off autobiography and short story collection for the year. But I'm going to keep my reading goal of 18 books because I know how time spent reading can ebb and flow. It's good number for me.
Did you read anything great last year that I should add to my list?
