December 27, 2012 — Leave a comment

Last year, I listed out (to the best of my memory) every book I read in 2011. I think the overall total was 116 or so, and I’m sure I got close to that again this year. However, I started tracking what I read in GoodReads and so have one less running list going through my mind.
