Since I last posted, I ate the broccoli sandwich, French toast, French pastry and Polish doughnut you see above. I also saw a few musicals: Violet, Heathers and If/Then. I went to two rooftop bars: The Press Lounge and Z Bar. I saw live jazz at The Plaza Hotel and I interviewed a woman about her Upper East Side button shop.

New York can be really pretty, whether you’re in the middle of Manhattan or way up in the Bronx.

A really awesome and tiny thing I ate recently: mini ratatouille quiche from Le Périgord.

Some things I’ve done lately: visited Liberty Science Center to check out their NFL exhibit, looked at Fountain Gallery’s latest art exhibit, got a little lost in the multitude of galleries at the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center and saw a very intense, dramatic play called Machinal.

This year, I set a few reading goals: I planned to read 52 books (one per week, inspired by this project) and ended up reading nearly 70. I tried to read mostly books written by women (similar to this project) and I feel that I succeeded as I only read a few with male authors. I also tried to save money by mostly borrowing from the library or reading books I already owned.
Next year, I still hope to read as many books as possible, but I don’t want to give myself a numerical goal as that limits the length of the books I choose. I’d like to read longer novels that I can’t finish in a week, which will mean reading fewer titles. I’ll continue trying to read mostly female-authored books. I also want to use the library, but as I still have a bunch of books on my shelf that I haven’t read yet (mostly borrowed from my mom or acquired from a friend who got rid of hundreds of books when he moved), I will try to work through those first.
Here is a list of my favorite books that I read in 2013.
