"to read" list 2013

Well something has me down...

It started yesterday afternoon, but I feel like it has been brewing since xmas break.  I keep telling my coworker that I feel like I'm a hypochondriac ever since all the illness I was around at x-mas.  Then I came back to work and people were sick there too.  So yesterday the headache started and the sore muscles, sore throat, and the just feeling completely exhausted.  So I went to bed after taking kids to piano last night, woke up with a headache and went back to bed- woke up 10 a.m. and headache was gone, but just continue to feel exhausted.  So no running today- and hence my run everyday in January goal- is not fulfilled, but I'll be back in the saddle as soon as I can.

So for now- so that I don't sleep my whole day away- I will lie in bed and write a list of my "to read" in  2013.  This list doesn't include the book club books I plan to participate in during the year.  These are my personal "to read" picks.
