2011 Book List

I had a goal of reading two books per month last year and while I did not actually read two books EACH month, I did read 24 books during the year.  One thing that made it easier was that I used the iBooks and Kindle apps on my iPad.  I would browse some free books and download them or when I was finished with a book and needed a new one, I could easily buy it and be good to go.  I do prefer hardcopy books still though.

The other thing that made it easy to read that many books was that I read some awesome books, including "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series and the first book in the "Game of Thrones" series.  Great reads!

What great books did you read this year?
