When it came to reading, things did not turn out so good, mostly because for various resons I effectively stopped reading fiction halfway into the year. My final TBR Pile 2013 tally was 4.5 books read out of 12.
It would be very difficult not to do better this year.
MY LIST:1. W. M. Thackeray, Vanity Fair
2. T. Mann, Joseph and His Brothers
3. C. Valente, The Orphan's Tales
4. J. Abercrombie, The First Law Trilogy
5. G. Keyes, The Briar King
6. J. Bruckhardt, The Civilisation of the Renaissance Italy
7. T. Holland, Persian Fire
8. A. Carter, Wise Children
9. G. Eugenides, Middlesex
10. G. Garcia Marquez, 100 Years of Solitude
11. P. Gedge, The Twelfth Transforming
