I just avoided a panic attack when my Kindle decided not to cooperate with me.
I have over 300 items on that thing and to think about losing access to them (yes, I know, I don't read 300 things at once, and I do have access via Amazon, etc.) freaked me out. I was about to up my medication. For serious.
I'm an avid reader.
Admittedly, I've fallen behind since my mind just hasn't been looking for the worlds that books provide since losing my dad. It should realistically - or perhaps stereotypically - be the opposite, but it's not. I normally set myself a goal of 100 reads as the new year approaches. I'll do the same for 2014.
The last few years I maintained a list of books I read (thanks, Goodreads!) and I have one for this year, as well. It's shorter than it has been in the past, and I'll get a post up in January with a recap.
I also often do the link-up of my year in book titles. My life in books for 2012 proved to be an interesting batch. 2011 in books was fun, too. And my Reading with Redneck: 2010 in review was the first time I participated. Throughout those posts you'll find links to the complete lists of books I've read over the years. I haven't been great at updating for 2013, which is why that'll come along in January, too.
Right now I'd like to give you a peek at a handful of books from my to-read shelves for the coming year. I'm not including anything I'm due to review, because those are more given reads, and I'd like to just include what I think I'll be picking up and diving into. Or what I plan to read, anyway!
The Theory of Opposites
Soy Sauce for Beginners
The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen Year Old Boy With Autism
The Book Thief
So, that's my short list. I have loads more - for sure - I'm addicted to reading. I think it's a pretty great addiction to have, though. I will definitely be sharing more of my to-reads and wrap up 2013 by giving you some feedback on my favorite and least favorite reads. Just stick with me. I'm working my way back to my reading roots, promise!
Do you have one book that's on your MUST READ list for 2014? Share in my comments! I'd love to hear about it and add it to my Goodreads shelves.
