“Best Books I Read in 2012” coming soon!

I’ve received several e-mails this week from readers wondering if I’ll
be posting another (the eighth) edition of “Best Books I Read in…”,
which features picks from a number of authors, editors, professors, and
other well-read folks. The answer is, “Yes! Absolutely!” This years
edition is in the works, and is the largest yet. It is so long (nearly
20,000 words) that I’ll be posting it in three parts, beginning sometime
this weekend. Thanks for your interest, and for your patience!
