Fifty Books Read in 2012

I didn't really start out with the goal to get through 50 books this year, but I thought I'd track it just to see how many I actually read. I made it through the 50th the other day. To be fair, 23 were audiobooks, listened to while I walked/ran/bussed/did housework. The transit strike really helped up those numbers as I was walking 1.5 hours  a day and listening to books.

In case you are interested, here are the books that I made my way through, and I've bolded my six favorites from the year.
