2013 - Reading Goal

In 2012 I set out to read 50 books. I had done this in 2010, when I first got my kindle, was on bed rest with Abigail and thought I had more time to read. This year I wasn't sure I would make it, but I surpassed my goal in early December. I am reading the last book of Margaret Truman's Capital Crimes series and have decided I will conquer books a different way in 2013.

In 2013 I intend to read the complete Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. In fact, I already started and completed Book 1 last week. So that gives me 19 books. There are also a few other Cornwell series, a series by murder mystery author Karin Slaughter, and I need to stay current on my James Patterson releases.

I'd also like to read more non-fiction. I plan to read one non-fiction book a month this year. So between Cornwell and my non-fiction books, I'll be halfway to 50 books for 2013.

I am starting a book club here at Fort Huachuca, modelling it after my beloved book club at Fort Meade. We will read whatever we like, get together over snacks and share reviews and swap titles. I can't wait for our first meeting in January. I keep my reading lists up-to-date on if you'd like to follow.

Total books read in 2012: 56!
