2012 books

This is the time of year when many of my friends post a list of the millions of books they've read in the last year. It feels like I don't read nearly as much as my friends do (and much less than I used to), but I can still post the top five (or so) books I read in a few different categories:

Adult nonfiction:

Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion / Greg Boyle
The Disappearing Spoon and Other True Tales of Madness, Love and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements / Same Kean
Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks / Ken Jennings
Pasta by Design / George Liaropoulos-Legendre
The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World / Steven Johnson

Adult fiction:

Redshirts / John Scalzi
The Five Books of Jesus / James Goldberg
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch / Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
