Books Read in 2011

According to, I've read 123 books this year. I know that I've read more than that, actually. (Some I don't remember to add to Goodreads, some I purposely don't add.) If I start a book and it is HORRIBLE, I don't add it. I have a separate Word document for "DNF" (Did Not Finish) books.
There are books that I've read a few chapters of at pertinent times but I haven't read the entire book yet (mostly theology books/Bible study books).

This also doesn't count the books that I've re-read this year, unfortunately. I do re-read many of my favorite books.

So, the novels/books I've read this year, from newest to oldest, are as follows:

This probably shows you that 1.) I read A LOT of books. (I pick reading over watching T.V.) 2.) I read many different types of books. That's how you get to be a better writer, in my opinion. Read lots of different things!!
So, what did you read this year? What were your favorites?

  1. I'm going to use your list to shop from as I grab for my new holiday gift cards. I LOVED Austenland. Your the first person that I've seen with that on their list. It totally fed my Mr. Darcy fantasies. Happy New Year.
