Since I'm not going to finish either of the two books I'm working on in the next few days I'll put this up now.

2011 was almost identical to 2010 as far as reading went. Fewer physical books got read, but a few more audio books made up the difference. The big problem is that my "to read" list went up by 50(!) books. A good chunk of that is audio books that I picked up through my Audible membership (now canceled). The rest came in via book sales and picking up the latest from my usual authors.

43 books finished
17 physical books
26 audio books
808 books left to read

I am still using LibraryThing for my book catalog, but I also signed up with Goodreads. I figured I'd check out the features there and see what it is like. There I'm only tracking the fiction I read and not worrying about the rest.
