2011 was a book year for me.
I don't know if I just had more time to read or just more desire to investigate issues in an in-depth way . Sometimes one book on a particular subject leads to an increased interest in that subject and even more reading about it as a result.
I may try reviewing some of my favorites as I get a chance. It will be fun for me to revisit some of these marvelous books as I try to remember (!) all that struck me and what I gained from their pages.
