Books I've Read in 2013

For the past three years I've track of the number of books I read and it's been fun to look back at the end of the year and see what I read. So I'm doing it again :)

This list is only of books and novellas I've read and finished (though if I read an entire anthology, I list only the anthology title). The books are listed in the order I read them.
