2013 Reading List: February

As I said last month, I read a lot of books. As of the end of February, I'm up to 40 for the year, and I think I'm a little slower this year. Whatever. In an effort to keep track of what I read this year, I'm posting my reading list. I don't necessarily recommend everything on my list. In fact, this month there is one in particular that I DON'T recommend...unless you were to use it as a primer for understanding the pro-death/euthanasia argument. I'll note that one in the list. And one I recommend in particular is Ido in Autismland, written by Ido Kedar, a 16 year-old non-speaking autistic boy.

Anyway, here's my list for February:
