What a good year of reading. There were many good books and I had a hard time ranking some. Many can be interchangeable with others. Most of these books have reviews here on Bookworm but a couple I just finished reading shortly before the year's end so reviews will be coming shortly. Total book count (excluding the two childrens books and the one I re-read)... 58! Well, looking forward to another good year here at Bookworm and I will have a post soon of books that I am most looking forward to in 2012.

Happy New Year!
