Peering into 2012

Well 2012 arrived whether I was ready for it or not. And I was not. Hence why my 2012 post is coming 6 days into 2012. Oh well. Whatevs. Ew I just said whatevs. 

Anyway. 

As with last year, I'm not sure how realistic this list is. It's simply my wishlist. My goal this year is 70 books. For my sanity's sake I was going to only post half of those, this way I wouldn't freak out when I tack on some more. But that's not happening.
