2011: A Year's Reading

Here's the breakdown of books read by month, with links to their reviews. After the monthly list, there are a few categories that were not included in the book/page count (picture books, ebooks, etc.) And, in a happy coincidence, my completed books and posted reviews happen to both neatly match up: every book I read (except one) has had its review posted this year! No waiting for updated post listing!

I must say, I have impressed myself. Not only did I read an amazing amount, but I managed to review just about everything!
