Here is a list of the books I read in 2012.
Galapagos - Kurt Vonnegut
Chariots of the Gods - Erich Von Daniken
The X President - Philip Baruth
Heat Wave - Richard Castle
The Island of Doctor Moreau - H.G. Wells
The Knowland Retribution - Richard Greener
Ubik - Philip K. Dick
The Ghost Map - Steven Johnson
Naked Heat - Richard Castle
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The Mysterious Affair at Styles - Agatha Christie
Eleven books in a year is pretty good for me. Some were books my husband or kids already owned. Others were library books. Still others I downloaded to my new Kindle (some paid, some free). One (Naked Heat) I actually bought a paper copy of in order to read it. And only one was I forced to read (The Ghost Map) due to teaching obligations. Not a bad year. Maybe, at some point, I'll once again write some actual reviews of the books I read. We'll see what next year holds.
