2012 Reading List

At the beginning of 2012 I made told made a resolution that I would only read books that I have never read before.  I read a lot usually and I actually enjoy re-reading a good book every few years. But for this year I figured I would stick to new books only and for the most part I succeeded   There are two on this list that I've read in the past.  When I read Fallen Dragon I had was waiting for a book order to come in and it was arriving late.  I had read that book several years ago and didn't really remember the plot. Not really a good excuse, but it was only one slide away from my goal. The other book that I re-read was Interface by Neal Stephenson.  This is a book that I read every election year as its about a presidential election(Candidate has a chip in his head that gets wireless data from pollsters...kind of scary concept). But other than those two books every other book on this list had never before been read.  A total of 47 books this year and 45 of them being new.  Not the most books I've read in a year, but not terrible I guess. I don't have any book reading goals for 2013 yet other than maybe try to branch out a bit into another genre at some point.
