Books of 2011

In 2011 I read or listened to 301 books.
That is a lot.
Here's the whole list - the bold green ones are the ones I've blogged about. A loose breakdown is: 28 non-fiction / memoir, 58 fiction, 73 mystery, 10 sci-fi / fantasy, 48 contemporary romance, 41 historical romance, and 43 young adult. Not that all of it fit clearly into a given category, but hey, I have to label them somehow. ("Have to" as in "I am a woman who keeps a spreadsheet about books, therefore I am a woman who seeks more and more ways to organize that spreadsheet.") So, without further ado:
