My own Goodreads year in books:

Since I pretty much stopped with the book recommendations on this page, I don’t have a chance to share my favorite reads anywhere anymore, so here’s everything I have read in 2013. There are some very good ones among  these books, although, as you can see, I finished quite far from my goal of 50 books.

I know, compared to the average Hungarian, who reads two (or less!) books per year, this is a pretty great result, yet I feel I could have done more. in restrospect, I can think of some time in this soon-to-be last year that would have been much better spent reading. But what has passed has passed, right? What goal do you think I should set for 2014?
