2013 Book List

While 2013 was an improvement over 2012, I was still hampered by being in grad school.  I should graduate this summer and then my reading, and its companion commentary, can compete with my other hobbies of hiking, basketball, running, and of course parenting.  I do hope to get back to my standard annual book list of 52 this next year.  So, for posterity's sake, since there really is no other reason for this, here is my 2013 book list.
