Books I’ve read in 2013

Like during the previous years, I again kept track of all – well almost all – my reading in 2013 and I have to say it has been another rather busy year. If I counted correctly I’ve read or well listened to 103 books. Of those 24 were commercial/non LV audiobooks, 41 were LV recordings and 38 were actual books. I of course didn’t include the vast number of work related papers, comic books and other stuff.

Anyway, of the books I’ve read during the past year, I liked “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee best. That one is one of my all time favs and I can’t seem to read it often enough! I also enjoyed re-reading part of George R. R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire”. Currently I’m somewhere in the middle of book 4.

The book I hated most probably was “The Ugly Sister” by Jane Fallon. The book starts out quite ok, but soon turns into a lot of whining. I guess the author didn’t have enough of a story and so she just filled the gaps with pointless waffle to create enough pages for an actual book.
