Goal: Read at least 60 books in 2014

This has been the first year I have ever kept a note of the books I have read, and I managed 60 books this year, so I am going for the same number. I have two aims:

1. Read each of the books selected in the Literary Book Club (as long as I can get hold of them - that is occasionally a problem.)

2. The rest of the 60 books to come from my tottering pile of TBR books, both paper and electronic.
