As always hat tip to the awesome Zandria, who already posted her 2010 list.
In 2009 I made my annual goal of 12 fiction and 12 nonfiction books. In 2011, I surpassed it! Thanks to audio books during the big commute and the joyous discovery of a book club that suits me. I read 15 fiction and 14 non-fiction books in 2011, and this is with counting a couple young adult series as 1 "book" each.
I list my books in backwards order, so the most recent read first. A star indicates that I read it with my book club, and if I did a review I'll link to that as well.

"The Crimson Portrait: A Novel" by Jody Shields review from 2007, this was a reread
Hey, I see I met another goal for the year, which was to do at least six reviews on my blog. It's difficult because review books are sent in paper form, and the easiest way for me to read something is often via audiobook. Sometimes it's difficult to find time to read the traditional way. In fact, I have a book I'm hoping to review in January, and I think it's going to be a bit of a challenge. Still this year, same goals, so I'd better get crackin'!
