Don't forget to add your books to the RLftCI group 10,000 in 2013 Book Count Challenge.

That's one resolution that wouldn't last long on my list!


message 22: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments I read a handful of nonfiction books a year, if that many. It used to be that I could only stand biographies because they told the story of someone's life. Now I can handle them if they have some information I really want to pick up. But, it's still hard to get through them.
