2012 Books

I did it! My goal was to read 52 books throughout the 2012 calender year. And I reached that goal about a month and a half ahead of schedule! The final tally was 56 books read in 2012. Not bad. So what number should I aim for next year? 60? 75? (I chose 100!)

Bold = I will most likely read again at some point
Highlight = I really liked it and want you to read it too (which is a given for anything written by C.S. Lewis)
