My (incomplete) 2012 book list


As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I will be participating in the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge. I’ve decided to post my reading list. This list isn’t complete yet, and it’s subject to change at any time (especially since I don’t own all books on this list and might chose to substitute one of them for something cheaper), but this is what I have so far, so I figured I might as well go with it.
