what I read 2013…

As 2103 draws to a close, I wanted to look back on some of the books I read this year. I didn’t do as much reading as would have liked, in fact, reading more is on my list for 2014. However, I did manage to read the third book in the Game of Thrones series and Revenge Wears Prada the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. Of the dozen or so books I read this year, two books seemed to…

The highlight of the month was the Matt Nathanson concert. I hadn’t really heard much about the opening act Joshua Radin, but I really enjoyed him. I had heard a few of his songs, I just didn’t realize they were his songs. The show was at Headliners, a local music venue. It’s small…
