Though not quite the least number of books since we've been keeping track, 24 is still below my average. I'm seeing a trend, here:
2005: 47 (I count grad school and beginning teaching for padding my numbers that year.)
I am on a slight upswing, so that's progress! (And if you're curious, I linked to all the past lists.)
Favorite first reads from 2011: Jayber Crow, Simple Church, and The Narnian
Favorite re-reads: The Case for Classical Christian Education and Mudhouse Sabbath
Best fiction not by Wendell Berry that I liked so much I read it again this year: The Help
They all deserve a post, or at least a paragraph, of their own. Someday.
