2011 in Review.

On New Year's Eve, we have two lines we can take; either make resolutions which will be broken in less than a month, or take a look at the past year to see what, if anything we've done.

I can't honestly say I've accomplished much in the blogosphere. With 133 posts, this year has produced the fewest number of posts since I started this blog.

I have managed to do quite a bit of reading if not writing. Most of the books I've read this year have been on the Kindle. Thankfully, I can get more books than I can read from Project Gutenberg.

The following list are the books I've finished this year; it doesn't include the few I've started but never finished.
