Books Books and More Books

One of my goals for 2013 is to read at least 26 books this year.  Although I would love to read 52, some weeks, I would rather veg out to Babylon 5 and knitting or spending way too much time learning Spanish through Rosetta Stone.

I've made pretty good progress on this goal so far: Books read in January:
City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte       (thumbs down)
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn                       (thumbs up)
Bring Up the Bodies by Hillary Mantel * (thumbs down)
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake              (thumbs way up)

Also on my bookshelf:
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
Going Clear by Lawrence Wright *

Regeneration by Pat Barker
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I'll write reviews of these books later.
