Not bad at all, I completed my Goodreads challenge to read to 25 books in 2013, almost 20 days in advance. I know the that 25 is not the number to brag about but I feel I wanted to keep a practical target for the year where many weeks had past without any time for turning the books. I also kept this count exclusive from the work & academic books, hence keeping a list which I choose rather than had to read.

So here is my 2013 List...So Far!
