Books Read in December, 2013

Since it is the new month of January (and it's barely three days old)... As is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my December, 2013 reads.

From my own perspective, December, 2013 was a somewhat slow reading month. I didn't read a lot, but several of the books I read (notably two of the roleplaying games) were quite large, over 300+ pages each. I also read quite a few comics in December, and that contributed to the lower number of books than usual. The best read of the month was without a doubt the superb The Bird of the River by the late Kage Baker. Wonderful stuff.

Overall, I managed to read 5 novels, 3 RPG and RPG products, 1 magazines, 27 comics, and 0 graphic novels in December. This brings the 2013 year end totals up to the following: 63 books, 19 RPGs and RPG products, 26 magazines, 106 comics, and 2 graphic novels. The reading for the year was down by 19 books, not great, but life this year had a lot to do with that.
