2011 Books

I love to use this blog as a way to remember & share what I’ve been reading. My goal for the past few years has been to read 50 book in that year. So far, I haven’t made the goal but I’ve come close. Here’s what I read in 2011. I came a little short again of my lofty 50 book goal but I’m happy with the 32 books I completed. The links below are to my reviews of each book.
