2012: My Books

Below are two lists.  One is a list of books I’ve read this year, and the second is the same list but reorganised in my order of enjoyment.  Some people are impressed when I tell them I’ve read over 30 books this year but I don’t really think it’s that much – just 2 and a half books per month, which isn’t really all that much overall reading time.  I’m hoping to achieve more next year!
