Booklist 2013

As I move into the next stage of my working life, I’m trying to continue the process of gap-filling in my reading lists. I enjoy being exposed to a wide range of literature in different genres and historical periods. Here is a list of the books and essays I have read in 2013. Texts I especially enjoyed and recommend are marked in bold.
