Last Year's Book List

As I've visited other blogs for the last week or so, I've noticed that many people are posting lists of books they want to read in 2012.  Since I love books and reading so much, I find that it's lots of fun to read other people's lists to get ideas for books I might want to read.  I also like to write down the book and author after I finish each book.
Since 1994, I've kept a list of all the books I've read each year.  (I know!  I'm such a nerd!)  I'm sure I've forgotten to write some down here and there, but it's a pretty accurate list.  I don't know what made me think to begin my book list all those years ago.  I'm glad I did, though, because it's fun to go back and look at it.  It's also handy sometimes when I can't remember a book's title and want to reread it or recommend it to a friend. 

I'll list some of my favorites from 2011 in case you might like to read them yourself.

  1. I like reading other people's book lists too. I will probably put mine up tomorrow. The book on Alcott looks good. I'm going to add that to my list.

  2. We're a Freddy the Pig family too!! Have you ever listened to the audio books? We read Freddy the Magician and Freddy Goes Camping.
