A Year in Books - 2011

I had to give this some thought and go through my Audible.com and Goodreads accounts, but I finally compiled a list of books I read in 2011. I think it's safe to say I loved/enjoyed most of them, and when it came time to try to pick favorites...I didn't think it was fair. So, in no particular order, here are the books I read in 2011, with links to their descriptions. I'd love to hear which of these YOU'VE read and enjoyed!
