Top Distractions of 2011

So, with 2011 skulking out the side entrance and 2012 boldly stepping forward, we here at the Serial Distractions Monkey Lubrication Depot and Tobacconist Shoppe™ look back at the various books we reviewed last year that still stand out as something special.

As I state on my Reviews page–I don’t present a review on this site unless I think it is something worth taking a look at in the first place. This, coupled with the fact that I don’t use a rating system in my reviews, makes it hard to narrow things down to a top ten. Nevertheless, I want to highlight some of what I will refer to as “Top Distractions” from the previous year.

So, without further ado and hemming/hawing, and in no particular order…

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
