Book List 2011

Taking a cue from one of my friend’s blogs, I’m going to do a list of the books I read during 2011. Unfortunately, it’s a pretty small list. You would think that writers should be reading a lot, and generally they should. But I really don’t read that much. Or rather, I tend to start reading books, but I usually stop reading them fairly quickly. I guess I have a short attention span. For 2012 my goal is to increase the number of books I read to 15. Seems like a reasonable goal to me.

So here are the books I read in 2011. I think this is all of them. Not sure though. It’s possible I’m forgetting some. But oh well. I’ll also list how long each book is. (Short: 200 or fewer pages – Medium: 200-600 – Long: 600-999 – Epic: 1000+) Listed more-or-less in the order I finished them. Not included are children’s books, because they’re too short and I read a lot of them. (Mostly to kids. Mostly.)

  1. The Case For Christ (medium)
  2. Having a Mary Spirit (medium)
  3. The Red Pyramid (medium)
  4. Crazy Love (medium)
  5. Beauty From Ashes (medium)
  6. Heaven is For Real (medium)
  7. Japanese Children’s Stories (short) [I know it’s a children’s book, but it’s in a foreign language.]
  8. Obama’s Wars (medium)
  9. Family Practice (short) [A super long medical text book. But I only read the first few chapters.]
  10. The Bible (epic)

Here’s hoping I get more reading done in 2012.
