Books – 2011

I really enjoy reading. I think it is one of the best ways to get out of yourself and “experience” something so different than what you currently know. As I used to read my weight in books and then taper off pretty abruptly once school started, I thought it would be interesting to see how my reading habits changed when my life changed. Now that I am working full time (9.30 – 6.00) bookended (no pun intended) with an hour commute (on the train) on either side, I wanted to keep track of the books I have read and when I read them. That way I could use them as a baseline for the future (I am such a nerd!) So without further ado, here are my books so far in 2011:
