I love to read. I am constantly adding books to my to-read list which grows much faster than any dent I can put in it.
Here is what I read in 2011:
Unfortunately I'm kind of a slow reader. This is partly because I like to savor books, mulling over each sentence, and partly because I read way too many books at a given time.

It's funny how you can get such a sense of my current obsessions from that list, namely history, France, and the lives of early 20th century English nobility. Then, there's Mockingjay standing out like a soar thumb. I'm a bit addicted, though; I must say.
It's so hard to decide what to read next, especially when there are so many books on any given subject I happen to become obsessed with. Right now I'm on a Jane Austen kick (I never got to read her in school if you can believe it.) and a Mitfords kick (more about this particular obsession here).
My to-read list is over 150 books long, and, since I only made in through 30 last year, I doubt I'll be able to read all of the books I want to read anytime soon, but I do have a good idea of where I want to start.
Here are some of the books I want to read in 2012:
Have you read any great books recently? What's on your to-read list for 2012?
