The Year 2013
…was not my finest year of reading but I’m still happy with what I did read!
My top 10 favorite reads would be: (in no particular order)…….
Eleanor Roosevelt, books 1 & 2 ..by: Blanche W Cook (1,293 pgs)
Jarka Ruus, Tanequil & Straken.. trilogy by: Terry Brooks (1,141 pgs)
Chekov’s Enterprise.. by: Walter Koenig (222 pgs)

Before I go to Sleep.. by: S I Watson (360 pgs)
Jack .. by: Geoffrey Perret (400 pgs)
Cemetery..by: Girl David Bell (400 pgs)
The Hiding Place..by: David Bell (400 pgs)
The American Heiress..by Daisy Goodwin (496 pgs)
Favorite book: Before I go to Sleep S I Watson. This one I could hardly set down! If you haven’t read it you should!
To be honest there were very few that I didn’t enjoy. One or two got “long in the tooth” but overall this was a good reading year.
I only read 53 books but 23 of them were 400 or more pages! wow.. I didn’t even realize that..makes me feel better that I didn’t read so many books!
18 books were history or biographies. I was never big into “history” but I sure have gotten into parts of it in my old age! WWII, Kennedy, and Victorian England being my driven favorites.
Overall I am pleased with my reading this year and as always love doing Once Upon a Time and the RIP Challenges that Carl does for us each year.
