My 2013 Goodreads Challenge!

I have set my goal low so far, only 100 books this year. But as I go I will be eventually increasing it to 365 books. I know that is a bit excessive, but in 2012 I read roughly 460 books, with only about 50-60 of those being novellas or books under 200 pages in length.

So for kicks and giggles I am going to list out the books I read this year as I read them. Not all will be reviewed, but at least a quarter of them should be, eventually. And to be nice, I will even include links!

I am making a separate list for books under 200 pages because I consider them novellas. It's tricky to set a definitive page number as the cut off between novellas and novels, it is based more on word count. But I had to make a cutoff point and 200 pages it is.
Plus the fact that I was able to read four of them in one day would lead to the conclusion that I can't count them as actual novels for my challenge. Maybe for every two I read it counts as one novel.
