[lifestyle] 2011 Reading List

I formulated this a few months ago, and I tried to include a healthy mixture of modern novels, classics, and graphic novels, along with some lighter readings. I have already read four of these books, and I am on way to reading a fifth right now. I will be writing my usual one paragraph or shorter reviews when I can put together a coherent listing of books that would make sense together in a review.
