Turning the Page

I had set a goal for myself to read 50 books in 2012, which is about a book per week. How did I do? Not so great. I read a total of 37 books, though more than half were read from Oct-Dec.

I am resetting and going with the same goal for 2013. I WILL read 50 books this year!

Side note: Notice the glaring lack of diabetes related books? I only read 3 the entire year. I would LOVE some recommendations on worthwhile diabetes-related reading, either fiction or non-fiction.
