Reading Recap for 2011 and some goals for 2012

So back in January of 2011 I decided to write down every book that I read so that I could keep up with it for my own personal knowledge and gratification. Along the way I actually amazed myself with how much I was reading. In fact, at times it even got difficult to keep enough books on hand for myself to read. Anyways, I thought I’d recap what I’ve read and start fresh on my 2012 list. I’ve also put together some reading goals for this year, some of which are concrete and some of which are not. Here we go!

Number of books read = 64

Fiction books = 55

Non-fiction books = 9 (This is a lot higher than I expected! – My mother should be proud)

Shortest Book = Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo

Longest Book = I have no clue but none of them were short!

Least favorite book = A Man in Uniform by Kate Taylor

Favorite Book = Not sure but I really liked Lions of Lucerne by Brad Thor

Average books per week = 1.23 books

Any other questions about my 2011 reading?????
