Books Read in 2011

I knew pretty early on in the year that I wouldn't make it to 50 books read last year. I wasn't really aiming for that number because I was focusing more on quality and new authors. Don't worry, I slipped some fluff in there too. Sometimes your brain just needs a break. So, if you're looking for something to read this year before I start reviewing even more books, here you go!

38) Born to Run, Christopher McDougall

40) Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson
41) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, J.K. Rowling
42) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, J. K. Rowling

 Not too shabby, if you ask me. Especially if you know the size of some of these books. I would say, as a whole, the series really did it for me this year. I enjoyed the Outlander, Sookie Stackhouse, and Harry Potter books probably more than any others. Funniest was Bossypants and most interesting was probably Sarah's Key. Other than that, none of them are really jumping out at me as total favorites. Oh well, onto more books. Never enough reading!

Big shout out to my library! I didn't pay for a single book on this list.

And if you need even MORE to read....... Books from 2010, Books from 2009.
