Books I read in 2013

This blog is private for now, which means that if you’re reading it, you’re probably good friends with me and you’re used to me bragging all the time by now. You should be able to get through this post somehow. If you don’t know me that well, then I’ve got you covered - press (Ctrl + Shift + W) for a modified version of this post.

I got into reading when I was around 5 or 6, making a spectacular debut with a book starring Noddy by Enid Blyton. I’ve come a long way since then, reading more than a few books across a variety of genres. (Here’s a list of my favourites in case you’re interested.) I used to read physical books almost exclusively because I reading PDFs on laptops was simply too painful to be worthwhile.

That is, until I got a Nexus 7 tablet earlier this year. Suddenly, reading eBooks wasn’t something that I had to put up with to enjoy a good book, it became as enjoyable as reading a physical copy, but it a different way. It’s much easier to acquire eBooks - I would hear of a book and begin reading it a few minutes later; very convenient too - I could carry my book around the whole day and read whenever I got a few minutes of free time. There were a few small benefits that I appreciated too - all books now had the same font and font size, and I could track my reading sessions thanks to detailed statistics.

Thanks to my Nexus and the Moon+ Reader app (can’t recommend it enough) I’ve read over 40 books and counting this year. I’ve been meaning to do proper reviews of each of the books that I’ve read, but somehow I seem to get distracted by other books. I thought I’d do a quick review of all the books I’ve read so far.
