I managed to complete the 12 books during the course of the year, albeit late on a couple of occasions, but hey ho.
I don't think I will keep up with these for 2014. My reading tastes are possible evolving way from this sub-genre and additionally, I'm trying to apply some modicum of control to fecklessly adding more and more books to my library when I already have enough for the next 20 years. I think I had to buy half the books here to participate in the group reads.
6 of the books were re-reads, which is probably another reason to step away from these and concentrate on other books waiting.
Still these books I read during 2013 were for the most part enjoyable, with only 2 a wee bit stinky!
