Same as before - no overlaps, short books count as 0.5.

Every year I say I'm going to post more, comment more, etc. and every year I fail, so I'm making no promises this time. Sigh!

I have yet to come up with categories... Jewish religious books, as usual, but as for the rest... I don't know yet!

Edited to add: Here is the list!

I really slacked on cataloging in 2012, so I have trouble finding exactly what I read. -.-; I have lists... several of them. Oops! I have a lot of Hungarian stuff this year because most of my short story reading - a huge amount - has been in English, but that'd be too hard to list here, for the most part. I tried to list magazines where I read full issues (but there's more even there).
