Reading: The Books of 2012

As with the film list I’ll keep this post updated with each book I read in 2012, including links to the opinion posts and their ratings. I think it will work better than 2010′s efforts (assembling a list at the end of the year without any real opinions) or 2011′s (monthly recaps).
