2013 books in review

Sometimes the outcome was doubtful, but I did accomplish my 50-book reading challenge this year. As part of my effort to move outside my “comfort zone,” only one was a re-read. A little more than half were something other than “regular” fiction:
• 6 non-fiction/memoirs
• 14 young adult
• 7 mysteries/thrillers
• 4 fantasy/science fiction
• 1 short story collection
• 1 poetry volume
There were more highlights than lowlights among the collection, but along the way I did have to abandon some works that just weren’t doing anything for me. Meanwhile, there is a whole other set of books I’ve started but haven’t finished yet for various reasons, so tackling that pile will be my primary sub-goal for 2014’s reading challenge.
