Books of 2013

This year, I will be attempting to keep track of the books I read during 2013, my aim is to read 50 of them. I will of course review them once I have read them and keep a list of them here. If you fancy joining me in keeping track of your books, or if you have read one of the books I have read, please comment and let me know how you are doing or what you think.

Here is goes!

1. Is it just me? By Miranda Hart

2. The time traveler’s guide to the fourteenth century by Ian Mortimer

3. The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini

4. Doomed Queens by Kris Waldherr

5. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

6. Meridon by Philippa Gregory

7. A Train in Winter by Caroline Moorehead (reading)

    I always keep track of the books I read. I used to have a complicated goal of reading 40 books a year, broken down into various categories, with minimum page numbers, with a certain number of them required to be written before 1900 or by an author I had never read before or by a Nobel-prize winner… now I’ve mellowed a lot in that goal, especially since I’ve been trying to read more of the blogosphere and articles in the museum world as well as do better at keeping up with the news.

    Do you have a goal in terms of numbers?

    • Thanks for the comment, I’m trying for 50, but seeing as I’m not through one yet that goal doesn’t look overly achievable! There always seems to be so much to do that distracts me from my reading. I am also trying to read more books that I wouldn’t normally pick up. Unfortunately I stick to the historical fiction section and don’t budge!
