Sadly, yet another year where I started off strong, but faltered towards the second half. My reading has again slowed down, as always a reaction towards my getting too much on the internet. I do read a lot of junk online (and not just in relation to Baidu or Tumblr) but also a number of articles and recommendations. I just need to remember to not let it get in the way of the actual reading.
Onwards to the list!
