What are you reading? 2013

Thought I'd start the new thread a few days early.
I finally saw the film The Town (a year or two late), loved it in a way I thought I wouldn't (and man, how handsome Ben Affleck is in sunglasses and a police officer's uniform!). Two Saturdays ago, they were playing it all day, all night, on one of the cable stations, and, with the flu, it was good to see it, over and over.
Anyway, I liked it so much I turned to Chuck Hogan's Prince of Thieves, from which the film was adapted. This book will close out my reading for the 2012.
DD is taking me to see Life of Pi on New Year's Day, which gives me three days to read the thing while reading "Prince." "Pi" is how I will begin my 2013 reading, along with a few gifts I received:
A David Foster Wallace biography
A posthumous David Foster Wallace essay collection
Best American Short Stories 2012
Dave Eggars, A Hologram for the King
DD knows that a happy mommy is a reading mommy, and planned her gift-giving as such. :) (Actually, she didn't have to give me anything. Her presence on Christmas morning before goibg off with her father, and her own love of reading, was my Christmas present.)
For fun, I picked up Keith Richards's authobiograpy, Fun, and Ken Caillat's Fleetwood Mac memoir, Making Rumours.
So, that should hold me for January.
With what reading will you kick off the New Year?
