In the interest of tradition, I'd like to share which books I managed to finish in the calendar year 2013. It's a bit pathetic. I'm a bit embarrassed. You may judge me. I'm ok with that.

The Jane Austen Guide to Life by Lori Smith*
Full Body Burden by Kristen Iversen**
Guts by Kristen Johnston
Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way by Dan Buettner
Paris in Love by Eloisa James
The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

There isn't much there. I don't think I even finished a single magazine in 2013. I've been reading too many blogs and watching more TV (via Netflix). Hmm...maybe I should do something about that.

This year I hope to read Three Cups of TeaWickedThe House of the Spirits and Ender's Game

What else should be on my list? Have you read any great books lately that won't hurt my brain?

*I hated this book. 
**I loved this book, probably because I was completely unaware of such happenings.
