Counting up the books I reviewed for 2013, I read only 33 books. That's a far cry from the 80 or so books I read in 2012.
My work schedule definitely changed in 2013 making it so I had less free time to read. I read several other books but they were junk books not worth reviewing. I found myself reading more junk books because I only had 5 minutes here and there rather than 15-20 minutes to actually get more out of my book at each setting. My schedule has made it so I understand the magazine readers more. It's easier to read something quick and easy if you only have 5 or 10 minutes in a setting. It's much harder to get through an involved plot line if you don't have 30 minutes or more to invest to get into a book.
In the new year, I am hoping to finish the 13 books that I started in my Kindle but haven't finished. I also have a few books (you know, the old-fashioned paper kind) that I have started but not finished. I would also like to work on reading through the Authors card game. I have all the books and poems from the game on my Kindle.
