After posting about wanting to read more this year, I scrolled back through my kindle (Christmas present 2011 from my stepmutha/best gift ever), and I was surprised: I read way more than I thought I did. And though I wasn’t tackling anything particularly chewy or difficult, I’ll be happy if 2013 can reflect 2012′s reading.
Obviously real books are the best etc, but my kindle is a great record keeper. Not only do I know which books I’ve read, it keeps them in almost the exact order in which I read them, which for the purposes of this blog post, rocks.
In 2012, I read over 30 books on my kindle (I still have to go through our stacks to see what I IRL books I read) and I’m going to post them here in chunks because it’s amusing to see the progression of last year’s bunch. I read The Hunger Games trilogy while we were in Panama in January, and then (presumably to self-medicate after all that kid hunting) I nose-dived into a succession of memoirs from funny people.
The Hunger Games Trilogy- Suzanne Collins
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?- Mindy Kaling
Stories I Only Tell My Friends- Rob Lowe
Live from New York: An Uncensored History- Thom Shales & James A Miller
My Seinfeld Year- Fred Stoller
Rockabye: From Wild to Child- Rebecca Woolf
Life as I Blow it- Sarah Colonna
The Bedwetter- Sarah Silverman
AWESOME: Kaling, Woolf, Silverman
NOTAWESOME: Stoller, Colanna
In the next installment, I read Fifty Shades of Grey and can’t climb out of the literary depression.
