I feel like such a piker. Thank goodness I have smart friends. What, Carl, were the most common reads? Robbie George's book on marriage, maybe?

Carl E. Olson

Ed: I always feel like an illiterate failure after compiling and reading the list! The two most mentioned books were the book on marriage by Dr. George and Co., and Benedict XVI's third volume of Jesus of Nazareth. A few others received multiple mentions, including Fr. Schall's The Mind That is Catholic.

The best book I read in 2012 was "The Consolation of Philosophy" by Boethius.

thx carl. FG, luvit.

I should have mentioned that I read the Ignatius Press edition of "The Consolation of Philosophy." It's beautifully translated and has wonderful notes and critical commentary. It's also amazingly inexpensive.

My best of 2012 (not nearly as long or as impressive a list as the ones mentioned in the lists linked above):

- Adam and Eve After the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution, by Mary Eberstadt

- Towers of Midnight, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

- Forming Intentional Disciples, by Sherry Weddell

- The Spear, by Louis de Wohl

- A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens (Ignatius Critical Edition, of course!)
