It is hard to believe that during my early years I did not enjoy reading very much. But now it is a passion. My only regret from 2011 is that I did not allow enough time to review some of the great books that I have already read. So many books, so little time. Oh well 2012 is a new year right?
Here is a simple listing of the books I read last year. Secondary categories will be listed in the brackets after the author. *Marks books I recommend.
