2012 Reading List

January 2012 – Last year I wanted to read 75 books, but due to studies and other commitments I only managed 57. These books are listed below. This year to bring some focus to my reading I’ve signed up for a number of reading challenges. These challenges are listed elsewhere on this blog and the total of books I’ve committed to read for these challenges is 48, but I anticipate reading others outside of this.
