    Okay, well, I did good on my 2013 list, but with a week left, it is time to start a new list for the new year.

    For this year, I’m going to add a few goals:

    #1 – At least 50 books
    #2 – At least 10 non-fiction books
    #3 – At least 25 new reads or books that have not bee read in at least 5 years
    #4 – No more than 10 books from the 2013 list (I love to read, but I love rereading a bit too much){finished read, not in progress}
    #5 – Finish in progress reading^
    #6 – At least 15 brand new reads (not started, never before read)*

    After the New Years, as my list starts to grow, I’ll break these down into categories like I did for 2013, but for right now, I’m just going to start with a basic list, including the books that I did not finish or get to on my last list.

    1 The Awakening^
    2 Hero with a Thousand Faces (nonfiction 1)^
    3 Queen Bees and Wannabes (nonfiction 2)^
    4 Writing the Character Driven Screenplay (nonfiction 3)^
    5 Cultural Literacy (nonfiction 4)^
    6 On Writing (nonfiction 5)*
    7 The Midnight Disease (nonfiction 6)*
    8 The Heroine’s Journey (nonfiction 7)*
    9 Biodesign Out For a Walk (nonfiction 8)*
    10 1984
    11 Siddhartha
    12 Great Expectations
    13 Brother Odd
    14 Odd Hours
    15 Odd Apocalypse*
    16 The Help*
    17 Ender’s Shadow*
    18 Speaker for the Dead
    19 The Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy
    20 Life, The Universe, & Everything

    So, looking at my list and my goals …

    I need to find another 30 books, at least 2 of them need to be non-fiction, and 8 brand new reads.
