Books Read in 2012

For the past couple of years, I've kept a running total of books I've read and have had a general goal to try and read 50 books over the course of the year. I generally exclude short picture books or young reader chapter books, but if I feel they're notable enough I'll put them on the list. I fell a little short of 50 books this year but still had a great year of reading and I'm looking forward to another great year.

What did you read in 2012? What are you looking forward to reading in 2013?

I also have a "to read" list on Goodreads but it certainly isn't in any particular order nor does it represent all of the books overflowing on the bookshelves around my house (in many ways the Goodreads list is a wish list for future books and I assume I will always eventually read the books I already have)

What about you?

What are YOU reading?
