books of 2011: adding up

(last year's reading: the long and short awards)

This year's reading: 131 books. 58 were for school, 67 were for fun, and 6 were for thesis (which is school, but I was working ahead on it for fun) (yay!). 8 were audiobooks.

Only 27 were books I'd read before; 104 were for the first time.

My most-read authors were Laurie R. King (11 titles: the entire Mary Russell series, rather addictive) and C. S. Lewis (9, including two volumes of poetry).

3 got reread: The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King, For the Life of the World by Alexander Schmemann, and Fruit of Lips by Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy.

I guess that also tells you which were my favorites.

Others would definitely be Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh and The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis. Consider them recommended.

Happy new year!

  1. Schmemann and Rosenstock-Huessy were aMAZing. And that is a lot of books.
