2012 reading list (so far)

Selected 2012 reading so far

Here are the books I’ve read so far in 2012, with links where they exist to books that I’ve reviewed (either here on this blog or briefly on Goodreads). As I’ve remarked before, 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. This has been another good year. How is your reading going so far in 2012?
