Not, admittedly, one of my better years for books. I spent more time reading webcomics this year than reading books, and my usual lunchtime reading has been usurped by a chatty co-worker. So, maybe next year. Also, not included: a skimming of the last four books of George R. R. Martin's Songs Of Fire and Ice series, re-reading only the parts that interested me.

Previous Lists: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004.
