Another year has come and gone, and so it is time for my annual book re-hash. In 2010, I read 50 books, and last year, I read 53. Not a huge jump, but that's an average of a book a week, so I can't complain. (And there's some discrepancy on the number. GoodReads says I read 53, but AllConsuming has my number at 56. I won't quibble, or spend the time comparing the two lists to see which is more accurate. Because I'm lazy like that, bitches.)
I don't have a favorite book from 2011, though I did discover a few authors that I really like: for mysteries, Robert Crais and Charles Todd; for romance/humor, Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I finally read Middlesex (loved it), and Cutting for Stone (also loved). I re-read Jane Eyre. I'd like to say that I have a goal of beating 53 books for 2012, but I think it's a pretty decent number, and I'll be happy to match it. Now, of course, I've got to get to work on the stack of fabulous books I got for my birthday and Christmas this year.
