2013 Reading Challenge
My main goal for reading in 2013 is to read BETTER books. Last year I read so much that was just filler and fluff..  which I am ok with, but at the end of the year there were not many that had made any real impact on me.

Some of the books on my to read list for 2013 Include:

  1. The Anatomists Apprentice by Tessa Harris
  2. Lady Almina & The Real Downton Abbey
  3. The Feast Nearby by Robin Mather
  4. The Orphanmaster by Jean Zimmerman
  5. Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  6. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
  7. Cleaning House: A Mom's 12 Month Experiment to Rid Her House Of Entitlement
  8. Becoming Fearless by Michelle Aguilar
  9. The Hero's Guide To Saving The Universe by Christopher Healey
  10. Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman
  11. Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst
  12. What happens when Women Say Yes To God by Lysa Terkeurst
  13. 21 Days To A More Disciplined Life - Crystal Paine
  14. Confessions Of A Teenage Sleuth by Chealsea Cain
  15. Cross Roads by William Paul Young
  16. The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Von Arnim
  17. The Death Of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell
  18. A Year Of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans

The Twelve Tribes of Hattie WAS on my to read list, but I just saw it was an Oprah Book Club Choice, so I deleted it.  I never like anything Oprah likes to read!

Isn't this cool?  I almost didn't join, because of that row on the right..  then I thought, why not reread books from my childhood?  Little House on the Prairie, or some Nancy Drew...

I have been wanting to read some of these from my daughters to read pile, so this is a great challenge for me this year..  I am setting my goal at Inspired.
1.                                                     2.                                         3.
4.                                                     5.                                         6.







(I read almost ALL ebooks last year..  I think I only read 2 or 4 "physical" books.  I have several on my currently reading list at goodreads...  because I always have my phone with me to read an ebook, but I rarely carry an extra book with me.  So this challenge should be pretty easy for me, and I expect to go way past 50...)
