My Life According to Books I Read in 2013

Getting back in the groove after a thirteen plus hour drive yesterday led to a slow start this morning, sipping coffee in bed and catching up on blog reading.  I was intrigued by Lisa at Two Bears Farm's post, My Life According to Books I Read in 2013.  I too had a great reading year in 2013.  I completed 36 books which is pretty darned good, especially since I seem to have gravitated toward very long reads.  The task was a challenge, since many books that I read had one word titles or were food related, but it was fun and I encourage you to join in too!   My goal for 2014 is to read 50 books.  So with out further ado...
