In the spirit of reading so much in 2013 (attempting to read 50 to 75 this year), I’m going to catalogue what I read every month here on the blog. We could also be friends on Good Reads. One of the books for January was Judging a Book by Its Lover, in which Lauren Leto (who is also a mentor to TechStars in NYC, holler) dryly recaps famous novels in only a few words. I like her format so I’m implementing five word summaries and adding stars. Stars = not how well it was written or the points it made, just how much I personally enjoyed it.
