    Hi there again, the old year has only hours left so I go on with a tradition of mine and look back to review all the novels I was reading this year. My count this year is 46 completely read books; a little meagre my goal was to read at least 60 but as the cliché goes: there is so much to do and always fewer time to do them. The list thereof follows below. Now I wish you all out there a happy ‘reading’ –year 2013! I would like it if you would share some of your reading-experiences of 2012. Meanwhile have a nice time and a happy new year!

    I've really looked forward to this thread since I received my first ereader a couple of years ago. It's fun to look back at what all I've read over the past year. For me, it's mostly Star Trek as I've been working my way from the DS9 relaunch on up to today for the past couple of years. As I'll soon be caught up, I think I'll start branching out into other sci-fi/fantasy, but don't worry, there's still plenty of Treklit for me to read in the coming year!

    That's 48 Star Trek novels, with 14 non-Trek novels, and 7 non-fiction books, for a grand total of 69 books read this year. Not too bad, but a little too heavily-weighted to the Trek side of things. For the new year, my goal is to alternate between Trek and non-Trek books, especially with my new blog which focuses on works other than Star Trek novels.

    My goal was to read 52 books last year, but I fell a little short and only read 49. Still, not bad for me. I also wanted to do a pattern of one Trek book, one Star Wars book, and then one of something else, but I threw that out the window around November so I could try to get caught up on all the Star Wars books I haven't read.

    Several books, but relevant to this board, only Q-Squared, which was a HUGE disappointment and read like fanfic.

    Loads of stuff, I didn't keep a list, but the stand out event for me was switching to an e-reader. I'm a total convert, and not just because it feels like I have a star trek style pad to read from.
