13/13 :: the wrap up.

Well, another year over and done with, and a new one stretching ahead. Which means our 13 Books in 2013 challenge is all over red rover. Did everyone have fun? Did you get lots of reading done? I know I did! And it was fabulous. I do have another, different 2014 challenge I’ll be posting about tomorrow, but first I need to take a moment to wind up last year.

The List of My Desires

Giving me a total to 34 books read, 17 of them re-reads, and 17 of them new-to-me, which I found a good balance. I’m a habitual re-reader, as you can see by the last three titles on my list – we were away camping, and I had no new books, so I burned through a few on my iPad and iPhone (especially handy in the middle of the night with no other source of light. Or source of entertain-me-so-I-stay-awake). I’ve really loved this challenge, and it’s been fabulous to get back in the reading groove.

How’d your 2013 reading go? Did you get as much done as you’d hoped?
