I am a big Wall Street Journal reader and in the “Review” section of this weekend’s paper, there are several pages with different lists of “the best books of the year.” Of course we have all been reading these year-end lists for weeks now. Many of them are repetitious; some are enlightening.
Still, I am confused as to what I should read when I go on vacation later this week. I am so immersed in the manuscripts and proposals that I review for work throughout the year that when it comes to what I might enjoy for pleasure, I am often stymied.
And, so I thought I would ask you guys what your favorite books were this year and why. Perhaps you can help me put together my reading list for the next couple of weeks.
