My Reading List from 2011 – So Many Books – So Little Time

January 2, 2012 0 Comments

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?
