12 Books I WANT To Read in 2012

Here’s a quick list of books I want to read in 2012.  Odds are, I wont read them all.  Odds are, I’ll read some not on this list.  The fact is I need to get through the ones I’m in the midst of right now before I start any of these.  But these are the ones I want to hit in 2012.  Shoot me any suggestions you have from your 2012 list, I’d love to see it!
