Books read for 2011

I read 47 books for 2011.  Too bad I didn't make it to 52 so it would have been a book a week average.  But I'd say not bad at all. Though I have friends who've read more than 70 and more than 100.  Bow to that! I did also watch a lot of movies and TV, so that took time away from the books.

My favorites for the year were The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Book Thief, The Hunger Games trilogy, Battle Royale, The Tiffany Aching series and Norwegian Wood.

I doubt if I can reach the same number as 2011 for 2012, but I'll try to read as much as I can anyway.  Looking forward to more books this year.
