Books for 2013

My reading was way down this year compared to previous years. But that’s okay, it’s the quality not quantity. So I’m aiming my goal a little lower for 2013 and want to read at least 40 books. Here is a list of books I want to read and may attempt to read in 2013. I have not put Calvin’s Institutes on the list though I plan to read that during 2013 as part of a group read. I may end up starting some of these books yet this year but nevertheless, they are on my want-to-read list. A lot of these would count as part of the 2013 Operation Deepen Faith challenge.
