Book Lists 2012

As in previous years, I’ll be using this page to track books I want to read in the year 2012 as well as post links to reviews of books as I read them.  In contrast to previous years where I post a list of specific books I want to read – with some success – I will instead be using the wishlist in my Library Thing catalog.  As of December 31, 2011 there are 144 books I want to read listed.  I know I won’t be able to read them all and can’t even begin to narrow the list down to something more manageable so this year I’m going to fly by the seat of my pants and pick books as the mood moves me.

I will be maintaining lists of books I want to read for Lincoln’s Birthday, Lent,  and my Around the World for a Good Book project.

I’ll keep track of all the books I actually read in 2012 at the bottom of this page. You can also check out how I did the last couple of years on my Book Lists ‘08,  Book Lists ’09Book Lists ’10  and Book Lists’ 11 pages.  Visit Library Thing to see every book I’ve ever read as well as my 100 favorite books of all time.
