Books Read During 2013

This year's list in in no particular order because my original list was lost and I'm in the process of reconstructing it.  Most of it was reconstructed for me by Katy Munger, Wonder Woman in a beezillion different ways. 

If you're a lover of lists (like me!), I hope you'll enjoy this one.
