If it seems like I read a lot of books, I spend a lot of time listening to audio books, so that helps. This year (2013) I am separating my list of books read into audio books and print books just to see how many of each I'm reading.

The best book I've read so far in 2013 is The Vendetta Defense by Lisa Scottoline. It's a great story but what makes it the BEST is the audio performance by Barbara Rosenblatt. If you read this book, truly, listen to it in audio. It's fantastic!

Books I didn't finish because I didn't like them:
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee - Dee Brown
A Pound of Paper (Confessions of a Book Addict) - John Baxter
This one isn't so much that I didn't like it, but that it is 43 hours audio long and after listening for 15 hours it was just getting tedious:
Postwar - Tony Judt
