What are you reading?

I like asking people what they are reading. Occasionally, it uncovers stories of presentations, conferences, or where a rare gem of a book was found. And other times, I like judging people by the books they are reading. Mostly, I am always eager to discover new articles, words, books, poems and schizoid pastiches that turn my world upside down with the way they are woven into one another.

My cousin says I should keep track of what I read. Here’s to 2012, the year I wrote down what I read.
