Books I Read in 2012

At the start of last year I made a ¬†resolution to read 30 books over the span of 2012. A bit ambitious as I had’t been quite been up to date with my reading appetite in last few years. So fail I did at that goal, and quite miserably so, as I read 13 books ( and two books in half ,so that probably counts as 14). Anyways, I read 3 amazing books by Malcolm Gladwell, and happened to stumble upon the books by crazy and delightfully funny Mary Roach. Talking about books and writers, I got to meet one of my favorite authors, Davis Sedaris, at a book reading last year, and got an autographed copy of ‘Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk’. (More on that that later sometime). Anyways, here are the books I read in 2012.¬†
