Not the "most wonderful" . . . what do you think this is, a Christmas carol? I'm talking about the time of year that everyone starts putting out "best of" lists. I was going to gather them, but Chicken Spaghetti has already done that, and quite ably too. I'm told she keeps updating, so check back often.
I always reserve my judgement until my end-of-the-year roundup, but I'd like to hear from you: What's the best book you've read this year?
P.S. It doesn't need to be published in 2009 - just read by you this year.
