The Best in Reading:2012. Time to list down your best books of the year

As the year comes to a close, I'm calling fellow PEXers to pitch in their favorite books of the year. What books made it to your best list? Anything you've read this year that you've particularly enjoyed? The book doesn't have to have been published this year, though I imagine many of ur favorites are fashionable books recently published. Books can come in all manners of taste, doesn't matter what kind you read (filipino and other languages welcome) so long as you've cracked a book and you think it's great. Time to list down your best books of the year.


  • Great books I discovered this year (not a lot apparently, many other books I forgot already; these have been on my mind for a while):
