I’ve never done this before, but over the last year I kept track of all the books that I both read and finished. Some are long and some are short, and they are mostly not in the order that I read them in. But for what it’s worth, here they are:
(*) denotes that I’d read it before.
(+) I would…
I’ve read a good number of these, but not all. I’ve gotten some good titles to add to my 2013 reading list.

I love watching his adam’s apple bob like that.
There came so loud a calling of the sea,
That all the houses in the haven rang.
He woke, he rose, he spread his arms abroad
Crying with a loud voice `a sail! a sail!
I am saved’; and so fell back and spoke no more.
From Enoch Arden by Tennyson
I loved you, and I probably still do,
And for a while the feeling may remain…
But let my love no longer trouble you,
I do not wish to cause you any pain.
I loved you; and the hopelessness I knew,
The jealousy, the shyness - though in vain -
Made up a love so tender and so true
As may God grant you to be loved again.
Book Suggestions, continued
Update on previous post. I’ve gotten some great book suggestions so far, both here and on Twitter. I’m still forming my reading list, so if you have more suggestions, send them on!
