Since 2009, I've kept track of the number of books I've read throughout the year along with the author and title of each book as a sort of written record for my own personal use.
In 2011, I read a total of fifty-six books. I usually aim to read one book a week for a total of 52 books a year... However, last year I happily exceeded my usual reading goal. Most of the books I read last year were fun, interesting, & informative. And then of course, there were those that really stood out and had me CAPTIVATED!!!
