I love the smell of books lining my shelves, and the look on the faces of friends when they enter my home for the first time. Books are my shoe fetish, and it is no secret when you come to visit! Mounds of books fill my home, and personally, I think books make the best decorative centerpieces.
Making a new reading list is my favorite part of getting a fresh start each year! Is anyone else with me?
Last year, I shared with you my 2012 Reading List, and although I didn’t finish the list, I read far more than I ever dreamed I could as a mom of a toddler. Plus, I finished several books that weren’t on my list (including lots of eBooks); not to mention the books I read to my little boy! Be sure to check out my list for 2012 to see the updated list of books I read (a total of 31!).
Since making book lists help me to be intentional with my reading, I wanted to share with you the 24 books I plan to read in 2013.
