Books Read in 2012  

I felt like I got nothing read in 2012, but looking back I read quite a bit, at least by my standards (slow reader). And I got three quarters of the way through War and Peace, which took a substantial chunk out of my reading time.


I found my reading drifted more toward non-fiction this year. I don't know if this is a sign of getting old :-)


Anyway, those in bold are the ones I would highly recommend:
