2014: year 4 in books

I know I’m late in making the page, but clearly I have been busy doing shit like living in Japan!

So this year, my goal is the same as last year’s: to read more than the year before. I read more in 2013 than I did in 2012, but I want to get back to my 2011 numbers… and now that I am back to a commute for work, it could happen!! I’m contemplating reading ALL Shakespeare, to scare the people on the train:)
