So, out of the 234 books read in 2013, here's a brief breakdown.
65 were by women.
78 were by non-British/US/Canadian writers. (Should I have included Australians in the list?) I do not distinguish between white and non-white authors from these countries.
38 were non-fiction (memoirs, science, history, art).
Not a lot more to say, I guess.
I suspect that 2014 will see fewer than 100 books read - I'm already feeling exhausted after last year's marathon.
