Reading List 2012

A sad little list, one I am very belated about resigning to the last year.  I'm sure I have forgotten some in the process of neglecting the blog.
Starting up the list for this year in my sidebar.  Good stuff, and again, I'm not sure I've gotten them all.  I'm back to ordering them to be picked up at the library.  Wish I could get better at reading on my multiple e-reading devices, but for some reason I read so much more slowly.  Too many distractions, maybe?
For 2013, I'm also going to start including the chapter books I read aloud to the kids.  They count too, right?  Besides, I want a record somewhere of what we share together.

A good list, I'd say! Big fan of 11.22.63, even though I didn't think I'd like it. Still haven't finished One Thousand Gifts because I feel like there is so much wisdom that I can only absorb in small doses. Delighted by Make the Bread, Buy the Butter. Surprisingly pleased by Rob Lowe's memoir. Loved Mindy Kaling. And Then Came You not my fave Jennifer Weiner or even close, but I'll keep reading each new book of hers. Did not have the rapturous reaction to The Night Circus that others did, but maybe it was just not a good book to listen to (as I did) instead of reading, even though the narration was excellent. Loved Ready Player One and then some, one of best ever audiobook experiences.

Miss you and wish we could be having this exchange at our table at the Kenwood B&N (does it even exist any more?) but without a single, stinking paper to grade in sight.
