Bender My Top Five: Books I'm excited to read in 2013 http://whqr.org/post/my-top-five-books-im-excited-read-2013 <p>I often have trouble motivating myself to read recent books -- after all, there are thousands of years of world literature out there and I've only made it through the tiniest fraction! But I'll never finish all of the novels ever written, so in 2013, I am going to read at least five brand new works of fiction. I wouldn't quite call it a resolution, since those are destined to fail (and since it's already halfway through January), and because resolution implies some sort of struggle or sacrifice. These are all books I'm eagerly waiting to hit the bookstore and library shelves.</p> Thu, 17 Jan 2013 16:07:48 +0000 Michelle Crouch 30274 at http://whqr.org My Top Five: Books I'm excited to read in 2013
