Top Ten Books I Read In 2012

1. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – Susan Cain. This book made me SO HAPPY. It more or less validated my entire existence as an introvert.  Anyone who has ever been made to feel guilty because they left a party early to veg out on the couch at…
