Read and Listened to 2012

Here is the list for the whole year of 2012. Note that since I moved to Baton Rouge in  July, and therefore stopped commuting such a long distance, I have taken out the sidebar for books listened to. While it seems like I should have more time, that does not seem so, for some reason. I also am now on a distribution list from major publisher, and am getting a fair number of ARC's (Advance Readers Copies) of books about to be published. That constitutes most of my hard copy reading.

So, here it goes! As in the past, there are in reverse chronological order (since that is how they appear on the sidebar).
