2011 Books
Another year, another book list. 2011 was a non-fiction focus year, and I only got through 41 books. Still, I got what I wanted, which was not getting slowed down with writing, and very happy I did it. Non-fiction books don't make me stay up past bedtime or knock other things out of my schedule!
