Monday, January 2, 2012 year, new reads

"Read more" always lands near the top of my resolution list, as reading is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. The books I read in 2011 were good, but none made my "favorite books ever list". I've been lining up my reading list for 2012, and I made an effort to peruse book reviews, hoping to read some great fiction this year. I put a bunch of books on my Christmas list, and I'm excited to get started reading what Santa brought for me.
