10 Books to Read in 2012

Last year, I made a short, casual list of a few books that I'd been putting off and really wanted to read. And I stuck to it and read them during the first few months of 2011. I like this productivity, and the insights it gave me, and I want to start doing this every year.

There's no source or rule for these books. Some I recently discovered--one was a Christmas present, another won't be published for another week--and some I've been meaning to read for years. Two I remembered when I found that my husband owned copies, so they are now on my bookshelves.

XThe Hero With a Thousand Faces, by Joseph Campbell

From Girl to Goddess, by Valerie Estelle Frankel

The Confessions of Saint Augustine

XQuiet: the Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain

XDust and Shadow: An Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr. John H. Watson, by Lyndsay Faye

XThe Waste Lands, by Stephen King

XThe Glass Bead Game, by Hermann Hesse

XSnow Crash, by Neal Stephenson

XThe Resurrection of the Son of God, by N. T. Wright
