I think this account of books I read over the past year is going to become a yearly tradition. I read 133 books in 2013! Part of the reason for that number is that there are number of shorter books on the list. By "short" I mean books I could breeze through in only 2-3 (or in some cases 1!) days. Another part of it is that I've always been a fast reader. Under the cut is a full list. I've grouped them by genre. Some of the books fit more than one genre, but I've put them in what I consider to the main one. Books with * next to them means I particularly liked that book or it really moved me. Books with (2) next to them means it was a re-read.
