As I’ve said before, for the last four (five?) years I’ve set a goal to read 100 books a year. In 2011, I hit the goal (yay!) and have finally gotten around to updating the final list. I’ve also started my new 2012 list here. (And, and as amazing new addition — In 2012 I’ll actually be rating them. Huzzah!)

Later this week I’ll do a post highlighting some of my absolute favorites.
