My Correct Views on Everything

Books Read: 1Q 2012

Here are the books I finished in the first three months of 2012. Links are to my reviews.

The stats: 26 books, 30.8 percent written or edited by women, 34.6 percent ebooks, 57.7 percent science fiction and fantasy. I need to do better on books by women: my target was to exceed 40 percent. Fortunately, there’s no shortage in the to-read queue.
