Top 10 best books of 2013

Those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook have probably heard the story of my epic journey to return to England. I’ll record it for posterity in a later blog post, when I have the time.

For now, I simply wanted to note that I’ve published my annual list of best books I read in 2013.

For the first time since I started making these lists, I’m not doing a companion “worst books” list. The books I read in 2013 were just that good! Well, there weren’t enough really bad ones, so I don’t think that a “worst” list would have the same significance. Here’s hoping I get a few stinkers in 2014.
