Reading Roundup Wrapup: April 2012

Pick of the month: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.  This was a tricky one-- though I read some good stuff this month, nothing stood out particularly strongly to me.  I also really enjoyed Alias: Ultimate Collection, Book 2 (though not as much as Book 1), A Life Worth Living, and Young Avengers.  But this was the only book this month that caused me to go around telling people I wanted to marry the protagonist, so we'll go with it.

All books read:
1. Unsimple Truths: Science, Complexity, and Policy by Sandra D. Mitchell
2. Alias: Ultimate Collection, Book 2 by Brian Michael Bendis
3. The Pulse: Thin Air by Brian Michael Bendis
