In 2012 I read (or listened to) just over half as many books as in 2011. I attribute that to reading too much fan fiction and political commentary (it was an election year) and to switching mostly to podcasts in preference to audio books. escape pod has some very good short fiction, but I haven't been tracking what I've listened to.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen was my favorite book this year. I also particularly enjoyed The Scottish Prisoner and Captain Vorpatril's Alliance. I hope Bujold finds more stories in the Vorkosigan universe as I much prefer those to her fantasy works.

My favorite non-fiction was Ben Behind His Voices, which in addition to being a moving book, led me to the National Alliance on Mental Illness which proved to be an invaluable resource for someone with an affected family member.
