book list 2013


I thought I posted this in January. Last night searching the internet for this list on my own blog, I realized it was still in the drafts!  Ha! Now it's visible for all to see how bad at blogging at am.  But, if you're interested, here's my list.


I posted on goals oh forever a go, and reading wasn't one of them. It's sort of an unspoken goal that I'll read as much as possible in a  year. I'm a reader. I love reading and talking about books to friends. So, because time is valuable and limited, I've made a list of what I'd like to read in 2012. These aren't hard and fast books, but I want to be cognizant of what I'm reading.

 I'd like to read at least 30 books this year. But, like yesterday, there's grace. If I do all of this list, or half of it, there's grace. This is just my small plan of what I'd like some of my year to hold.

  1. I LOVE that you put your book goals in categories like that! I definitely want to try to be better about reading biographies and classics and less "fluff."
    I just finished Francis Chan's Forgotten God and it was so, so great!
    And Gone Girl is a great fluff book that I just couldn't put down!
    Good luck with your book list!
