Re: What were your reading experiences in 2013?

I've only kept track of my reading since i got a kindle a few years ago. In 2011 I read 40 books, and 70 in 2012. I was aiming to double that in 2013, but didnt quite make it - Instead I managed 120. This was the first year I really got into treklit, beyond following New Frontier (inspired mainly by a new frontier re-read early in the year).
