So I exceeded my target of 52 books in 52 weeks in 2013, can I keep it up this year?

Just had a thunk. There will be more e-books this year and this will include Kindle Singles and such like things. For the avoidance of doubt, I will include novellas on my “have read list” counting towards the 52 books, but individual short stories may be noted but not counted (though of course entire collections will be included once finished). Does that make sense? I hope that makes sense.
