100 Books in 1 Year

It is now the year 2013! One of my resolutions for the year is to read 100 books in 1 year. I will be using this page to keep track of all 100 books. This page is not meant as a "brag page" or anything like that. Rather, I am using it to keep track of the 100 books I am reading this year, as well as what books they are! This will include children's books as well as e-books. A book is still a book, and it counts no matter how short it is or if it's in digital format! All books I review for Night Owl Reviews (NOR) will also be included and I will include links to such books to where you can read the reviews on NOR.

Please note: I will not provide a rating system to any books mentioned here. I will also not be using this page as a means of promoting fellow authors' books. This is something I am just doing for fun and just as a personal goal.

Note to authors listed here: Sorry, no links other than NOR reviews will be included on this page. If you'd like, you can sign my guestbook and post your link there. Thanks!

All books included on this list are books I have read in their entirety.
