Books Read in 2011

Ah, 2011. I was at college then, and I spent a lot of time in the restaurant or the local park soaring through books. Even during my breaks at work, I would sit in the dark and read by the glow of the electric heater.

It’s funny how a list of books bring me back to that year and remind me what it was I got up to. I read The Easter Parade when my best friend came to visit for a weekend after moving away the year before. I read The Master and Margarita in London when we went to Trafalgar Square to meet the cast of Harry Potter. But I digress. Here is a list of the books I completed in 2011:
