2013 Books and Periodicals  
I challenged myself to read 35 books this year. Still not even remotely the amount I used to devour until roughly 10 years ago, but I'm making progress. I went for 30 in 2012, ended up with 38 (including 3 short stories), so that should be feasible. Wish me luck.

The image on my banner is from Mark O'Hare's comic strip Citizen Dog, one of my favourites. It shows cat Cuddles reading a newspaper. Because he's sophisticated like that. He loves Jane Austen, by the way. What a pur(r)ist!
