message 27: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Please do, pam. This list is for all the books you have read this year. For the stellar reads, you can vote on bettie's list. Link way up there under the picture.

Thanks for playing.


message 28: by Pam (new)

Pam Masters I added the ones I've read. Will keep doing it as the year goes on as well.


message 29: by Pam (new)

Pam Masters Looks like we've been reading some diverse books. Might find a few that I want to read.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed a book with no actual votes.


message 31: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Thanks Susanna... always vigilant!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Nooooo problem.


message 33: by Pam (new)

Pam Masters Went to the library last week, and decided to get a book from this list and my to read list. Starting at the top, so next I will be reading Gone Girl.

It's on my to read list!


♥ Marlene♥ Hi my friends. Have not been here for a while. reading is not going so well. Every night I try to read but after 10 pages (If I am lucky) I can't seem to keep my eyes open.

Anyway. Glad to be here and I did start a new best of 2013 for us 35s and over.

Here is the link Hayes.
http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/34...

ETA: I did add a link to this list but I am going to do what you did and try to get the link on top!

Good to be back. (I have read some Dutch books. Maybe better not add those?)


message 36: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Thank you, Marlene. I will go right now to check.


♥ Marlene♥ I am adding the books i have read. I remember correctly that you just add all the books? I ask because most of the books i read in January sucked. Noticing I am adding books that I did not like and only gave 2 stars.


message 38: by Hayes (last edited Mar 23, 2013 08:34AM) (new)

Hayes Yea, all of 'em. You can make a note that you didn't like it if you want, so when someone goes to see who voted that will show up.

Thanks for playing and it's nice to see you back.
I havenàt been around much either... working too hard!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'm not adding one that I abandoned really early, but yeah.


♥ Marlene♥ No me neither Susanna but I do add the books I did finish but did not like. As Haynes suggested I do write notes telling how much stars I gave the books.

Not reading as much as I usually do. Last year I had set to read 115 books which I easily managed. Not this year.

Even though I have been reading English now for more than a decade I have noticed I still read Dutch a lot quicker. So sometimes read some Dutch books. I want to at least read a hundred books this year :)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yeah, if I finish them, on the list they go - at the bottom.


♥ Marlene♥ Same here Susanna. I add the good books on top and the horrible ones at the bottom. ;)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I've made a list for the folks born in the 60s, by the way: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/37...


message 44: by Penny (new)

Penny Hayes wrote: "Great Penny... looking forward to seeing your additions."

I am remiss and have not been reading the messages! My list this year is full of odd-bods. Of course I was a fool and said that I would read the top three voted books on my 70s list from 2012 (which ended up being six as some had equal votes). Which meant that I read 'The Hunger Games' trilogy and helped it gain ground sorry! And I have one left to read - 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', but honestly I'm sick of reading books that are not of my own choosing, so that will have to wait until further in the year.
I thought that 'The Hunger Games' would be up there in votes again, meaning that I wouldn't have to read them next year, but no, bit of a shock - I might have a whole set of new books to read in 2014.

And I'm also subject to reading books for my course, which feels wrong somehow. Sort of like 'not my choice folks!' needs to be put in the margins of my votes.
Anyone else reading under duress?

AND yay Susanna for starting up a 60s list!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'm starting to think I'm the only one born in the 60s...

Hayes Sorry... 1959.
