#25: Read 13 books in 13 weeks – 30 before 30 list

When I told Comma Mister of my plans to read 52 books in 52 weeks, he laughed and said, “why don’t you try something more manageable first, like 13 books in 13 weeks?”

So now that I’ve been talked down from my ledge of reading misery, here is my list. I plan to read 13 of the following books between Feb. 7 and May 7. I tried to create a good mix genres, along with a few classics and books that have been on my wishlist for many a year. I’m also mixing things up by getting most from the library, buying a few, reading some on my Kindle and even listening to books on Audible.

And remember, kids, reading is fun! (Where are those BookIt buttons when you need them?)
