2012 Books and Periodicals  
My only true resolution this year is to read more, and to encourage me in doing that, my books get an entry of their own now instead of just being listed in my 2012 Scrapbook.

30 books probably don't look like much to many of you, but for me it's a lot and means I'm attempting to double last year's amount of books. I have to rediscover the passionate bookworm I used to be, but I'm taking it step by step. Calvin and Hobbes from Bill Watterson's comic strip look forward to take the journey together with me.
