Hey all -
I missed posting earlier this week, so to all of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas! I am finally home, and there is a lighted tree and my village is up, and that’s about it. It’s been a long month.
One thing I did manage to do while on the road was to post my Best Books of 2013 list. These lists seem to come out earlier each year, which is kind of silly, I think. I’m sorry, but I actually am still reading all through December! So I used to post my lists quite late. But found that enthusiasm for them waned after the holiday, and they can serve as a bit of a shopping list for those interested. So this year I vowed to post it earlier.
It is, I think, a great list. It is posted in my Minneapolis Books Examiner column, and as such, it is necessarily Minnesota-centric. I tried to include only those books that had Minnesota connections. But that meant I had to excise several great titles. Still, it’s so full of wonderful things.
And I’m pleased as punch to be included this year in the online list compendium to top all compendiums, put together by Largehearted Boy. You can find me under Minnesota Nice (as the Examiner interface really does make it hard to figure out what the column is called).
Please check out this list of wonderful Minnesota Nice titles, and peruse the other great links that Largehearted Boy has pulled together for your reading pleasure.
And now, I must get back to reading because only a marathon is going to enable me to meet my GoodReads Challenge for this year. sigh.
