Books of 2012

December 31st, 2012 · 1 Comment

This year I read 34 books. And by “read,” I mean that I got through them either in paper form, digitally on the Kindle or other device, or by listening to the audio version. I had a really slow start to the year. I just could not concentrate to read, but I ended up still pretty good.

This is the year that Dallas surprised me by getting me a Kindle. At first I didn’t take to it. I could only concentrate on the device, and the font sizes and the brightness, but I got past it quickly and was whipping through books in no time. I love it now! I also got an Amazon Prime subscription this year. This not only allows me to have free two-day shipping from Amazon, but also lets me watch a bunch of movies and TV shows for free and I got to check out one book from the Amazon Prime lending library every month. When the Harry Potter books became available, I checked out one per month for 7 months and just finished up the last book in December. I loved reading these!

The book I enjoyed the most this year was 11/22/63 by Stephen King. I listened to it mostly at the gym early in the year and it was fantastic. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was a crazy page turner that totally sucked me in. The biggest surprise this year was Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe. I kept seeing this at the top of people’s lists and I didn’t think it would be good, but gave it a shot anyway. It was so good! If you do the audio version, Rob Lowe reads it himself.

Here’s what I read in past years:
