Read in December

Here's what I read this last month, as my year-long Book-A-Day string chugged to a conclusion. This is purely an index, and so probably not interesting to anyone who isn't me. Luckily, I'm burying it at the moment of the most pointless holiday ever invented, so hardly anyone will notice it.
