Favorite Reads of 2011


Something I’ve done the past few years is engage in a reading challenge. I documented 2010’s on this blog, but left it to GoodReads to handle the bookkeeping exclusively for me for 2011 (41 books read and counting on a challenge of 35. Yeah, baby!).

Reading challenges serve a couple of purposes. Most notably, it allows me to track what I’ve read in a fairly unobtrusive and sometimes fun manner, while also allowing me to gauge progress over the course of the year. Of course, it also makes it easier to write a “Favorite Reads of the Year” post, something which has become an annual thing for me.

So, without further ado, here are my favorite reads of this past year.

The Best of Robert E. Howard: Volume 1: The Shadow Kingdom The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century
Fool's Fate (Tawny Man, #3) Viking Warrior (The Strongbow Saga)
Dragons From The Sea (The Strongbow Saga #2) The Children of Cthulhu
Into the Storm Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Crusade The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (Burton & Swinburne, #1)
