Books I Read in 2012 That I Would Recommend to People Who Go in for This Sort of Thing

Disclaimer: I can't name my favorite or best anything, so I'm not even going to try. Nor am I going to limit them to 12. I may have read books that I liked that aren't on this list, esp. if it was early in 2012, and I've just plumb forgot b/c I've read so much since then. There are books that I own that came out in 2012 that I haven't gotten to yet. A lot of books came out in 2012 that I didn't read. Some I never even heard about. Some are in languages I don't read. Some I've been meaning to order but haven't yet. Finally: I read these books in 2012, even if they came out earlier, though most did not. No distinction is made between books of literature and books of literary criticism, or between books and chapbooks.  Having said that,
