Read in 2012

What I have read in 2012
Total Number Read: 52

Looking for reviews, or when I read them? I post via GoodReads and Twitter as I complete the book(s) . My Twitter feed is on the right side of the blog, if for some reason you have not yet clicked follow me.  😉

An asterisk (*) will show a book NOT from the library (I support the library first as often as I can, so that’s most of my book list).
Italics: I’m reading the book now
(e-book): an electronic book read through my e-reader app or by computer
