For those of you who are curious, here is the full list of books I'm going to try and read this year. They are broken down into the categories I picked for my 12 in '12 challenges. I've got 10 reading challenges and 2 non-reading challenges. Since I know I can't read 120 books in a year, I'm letting some books hit more then one category. A few of the books (marked with a * in front) I still need to find and buy.

Read 12 more books then 2011 (so 55 books)
