I didn’t read in much as 2012 as I would have liked to, but 2012 was a great year for other reasons. I grew stronger than my nicotine addiction, lost some weight, and spent a lot of time in the glorious wilderness. I averaged greater than one book per month, but most of these were read towards the end of the year. My goal for 2013 is to read at least twice as many.
I’ve reviewed some of these on various blogs, as noted below.
- A Universe From Nothing – Lawrence Krauss (My review)
- Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier – Neil deGrasse Tyson (My review)
- How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming – Mike Brown
- Why does E=MC2 – Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw
- 2312 – Kim Stanley Robinson
- The Doctors’ Plague: Germs, Childbed Fever, and the Strange Story of Ignac Sammelweis – Sherwin B. Nuland
- Touching the Void – Joe Simpson
- Deep Surival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why – Laurence Gonzales
- Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle-Age, Becoming One of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself – Rich Roll
- Into Thin Air – Jon Krakauer
- The Code of the Woosters – P.G. Wodehouse

And I’m starting 2013 with:
The Road to Fatima Gate – Michael J. Totten
2013 will be a year of continuing my positive habits of 2012, with a greater focus on reading and writing.
