Books Read in 2011

This post is primarily for my own benefit and the benefit of my mother (who likes to keep the list of books I read in the past year). So, here is a list of the books I read in 2011. I think this was my most productive year ever, in terms of reading. I normally read between 30 and 40 books a year. For some reason, my appetite was ravenous in 2011.

We'll see what happens in 2012. I am planning to resume writing a personal journal, so this may take up more time than I used to spend and it may also diminish the number of blog posts I write. However, I think it will be beneficial, despite less reading and blogging.
