Reading List – 2011

On this page, I’m going to keep a running tally of all the books I’ll read in this new year. The goal is 30 NEW books by Dec. 31, 2011. I already know I’m planning to revisit some of my favorite classics, so I won’t count those toward the goal. Halfway through the year, it’s important to reassess. Without double-dipping, I’m nowhere near the mark.
