Books Read in 2013

We come once again to the beginning of a new year, and the end of an old one. So it is time, once again, to do a roundup of what I got read from cover to cover in 2013. Previous years’ lists can be found here.

The most notable difference with 2013 is the number of ebooks read, due to my having an ereader and tablet, and also ebooks being more readily available for the book reviewer.

Who knows what 2014 will hold?
