Goodbye 2011 - Hello 2012!
So even though I did not read the usual volume, here are the 5 I enjoyed the most in 2011:
1. "Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name"
2. "Please Look After Mom"
3. "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao"
4. "The Bean Trees"
5. "French Leave"
No, the Adam Ant biography did not make the Top 5 but I have tickets to go see him in concert in February! I can't wait.
Also - I read all of the Top 5 in print. Just interesting. I still feel it's the content and not the format so we'll see if an e-book shows up in the Top 5 in 2012.
I'm looking forward to "The Pale King" by David Foster Wallace which was a Christmas gift. I also have a Tao Lin title I have not read so have to get to that one. Picked up another Ripley book used while I was out buying gifts. So there will be some interesting books on next year's list - which will be longer! Happy reading to everyone in 2012!
