My 2011 Reading List

Last year I didn’t try to keep track of what I read until close to the end of the year. This year, I’ve got a head start and will be listing the books I read in 2011 on this page. I’ll note what I’m currently reading at the top of the list, followed by the books I’ve finished and the date I finished them. I’ll also be attempting to make better use of GoodReads.com to help me stay on track. In fact, I even signed up for their 2011 Reading Challenge. Will I make it to my goal of 36 books this year? There’s only one way to find out…

[UPDATE] On the last day of 2011, I finished reading my 40th book of the year, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, 10th Anniversary Edition. I’ve read American Gods before, but this was my first reading of the Tenth Anniversary Edition. I enjoyed participating in the Goodreads 2011 Reading Challenge so much that I plan to sign up for it in 2012 as soon as it’s available. I also plan on continuing to update my Reading List pages here on FDC, and will probably have the new page up tomorrow.
