    Captain's (Reading) Log: Stardate 2013.01-.365

    Please share the books you have read in 2013 in this thread.

    I have started reading The Boys from Brazil by Levin as part of my 13-seconds reading challenge.

    1. The Boys from Brazil by Ira Levin (S1) ~ 8/10 A thriller based on a Nazi conspiracy with a hint of sci-fi, an entertaining page-turner; ideal for holidays.

    2. A Short Story of Tracktors in Ukranian by Marina Lewycka (W1/N1) ~ 7/10 A humourous take on immigrants living the UK. Very promising!

    3. Decameron by Boccaccio (R11) ~ 8/10

    4. Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris (W2/S2) ~ 7/10

    Oh poops. I wanted to make this thread. I knew I would forget to do it and someone else would make it instead. I guess also we could include books we FINISHED in 2013 but may have started earlier.

    If you feel so strongly about it, I can remove my thread and let you start one...

    What is this 13-seconds reading challenge you speak of?

    I'm still working on the 11 new authors in 2011.

    Trojan Women by Seneca, it's a play I read on January 1. I am just about finished with Apuleius and a good way through Ovid

    Personally, I think that the unique and supreme delight lies in the certainty of doing 'evil'–and men and women know from birth that all pleasure lies in evil. - Baudelaire
