Books 2012

This page is an archive of books read in the year 2010. (Click here for last year’s list.) The ones marked asterisk (*) are books I have read before. The bolded titles are books I recommend. The titles in strikes are books I dislike; that does not in any way mean the books would not be good reads for you, it is purely my personal preference.
