2011 reading list (so far)

Here are the books I’ve read so far in 2011, with links where they exist to books that I’ve reviewed. It’s a competition with no one but myself, but it is always interesting to reflect halfway through the year where one is at with one’s reading, both quantitatively and qualitatively. I could perhaps have read more thus far, but I’m really liking my reading year so far. How about you?

Braydon Beaulieu and Janet Somerville have been reading up a storm so far in 2011 – theirs are engrossing and impressive lists! Tweet me your list @bookgaga, and I would be happy to link to it here.
