This week I want to know what the best book you read this year was...period. No restrictions here. I have already had 2 nominations for The Glass Castle by staff here at the RA desk. The BPL book groups read it this year, and Kathy and I loved it so much, we convinced most of the staff to read it too. It will definitely make my top 10 to come out in 2 weeks.
So don't hold back. Give me at least one and no more than three of the best books you read this year. It doesn't matter when the book was published; in fact, the older the better. Next week I will be asking you to look to the future.
