Thank you, Lauro, for this preliminary list.

Readers, please send us additional 2011 titles (both full-length and otherwise). This is meant to be a collective gesture. And thank you to those of you who have already sent in titles that we missed. Keep them coming!

I am happy to see your list this morning! Thank you. A few of these are on my wish-list, but it looks as if I will be adding more.

Ruben Quesada's Next Extinct Mammal was a wonderful read for me this year.
