2011 Reading List

The reading list is an interesting exercise, because I can remember the special places I was while I was reading, in some cases (whereas, most of it's done lying in bed). The nostalgia of it all is all the more prevalent when I look at last year's list, where I did most of the reading in a quiet room at my old place of business during my lunch hours (which might be another indicator that I wasn't fitting in there.)

I had a strong start to the year that set me on pace to read way more than I would have expected, courtesy of a pleasant, sunny trip to Mexico.
