musings

2012. yes we can (read).

there is no “again.” i have never done this before.

what is ‘this’?

alan rickman reading catcher in the rye? yes please!!

below is my reading list for 2012. i have not made business card-sized copies, and so the list is perhaps more flexible than i would like to admit. but if i accomplish only two books on this list, i will be thrilled to have at least tried.
