Books I Read in 2011

For the past few years, I’ve been keeping a list of the books I have read during the year. A bit bored today so I figured I’d update the list. You’ll notice that during the fall I went through a Stephen King kick that took me through the rest of the year. I had read his early works back in in high school and had love it then. I thought I may not enjoy it as much if I reread them as an adult, especially since I haven’t really cared much for his more recent work. I was wrong. His early stuff still captivated me. I have a feeling that sometime after Misery came out in the 80s, his editors gave him free rein and the quality declined.
