My Year in Books

Back in February, when Snowmageddon hit, I decided to set a reading goal for myself of 35 books for the year of 2011. It didn’t seem like much – something I would blow through – and then sometime in June I realized I was something like four books behind and I thought, “Huh.”

Last night I apparently finished my reading goal for the year, just in time for finals. Some of them were fantastic, some of them were absolute crap, some of them were for school. Nonetheless, I read 35 books, amounting to over 13,000 pages.

And now, for your reading pleasure, here’s my year in books!
