Recommended Reading from 2012

Each year, I aim to read around 50 books, which is close to a one-per-week pace. This year, I fell short and only hit 40. Bad Barry!

Also each year, at around this time, I try to separate out about ten or so of the books I read that I think y’all might enjoy as visitors to the BLog. Here, in no particular order, are this year’s:

  • Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base by Annie Jacobsen
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • Fade to Blue by Sean Beaudoin
  • Insanely Simple by Ken Segall
  • The Girl in the Park by Mariah Fredericks
  • The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
  • The Victorian Internet by Tom Standage
  • My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf
  • Burning Blue by Paul Griffin
  • Bruce by Peter Ames Carlin
  • Live From New York by Tom Shales & James Andrew Miller

If you give any of these a try, I hope you enjoy them! Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
