You know what I love? When you discover you have more in common with someone than you originally thought. For example, you're talking to someone you've known for a while and the conversation turns to books. All of a sudden, you realize you've read the same books, like the same authors, etc. Then one of you says "oh, have you read....?" and you both end up adding a whole bunch more books to your Must-Read List.

Books I read in 2012:

  • The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (highly recommended)
  • Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple (highly recommended)
