Unread Books 2013

Here's the 2013 incarnation of my Unread Books list. It's just as scary as it has been every other year I've posted it too. For every book I read from the list, I seem to add at least one to the list again, and usually more than one. The titles with a line through them are currently sitting in boxes. I think there's only one box left to unpack, but to be honest, I'm not completely sure what's in it now.
\
One of these days I really need to go through this list and my book collection and give it a proper update. I know there are books that aren't on the list, and others that are but that I've sold on. I try and work from memory most of the time and it's definitely not a hundred percent accurate.

Edited November 5 to update the storage status of many of the books and to add a new title.

Last year, honestly, I didn't do too well with this list either. Maybe this year I'll do better.
