It is time to start talking best books here on RA for All. But first a word of warning. I do it a bit differently than other websites. I will have 2 different categories: best book you read this year that was NOT published in 2012 and best book you read that WAS published in 2012.
Those will run for the next 2 Monday Discussions. Then later in the month, I will have my list of the best books I read in 2012 no matter their publication date. And over on the Browser's Corner, the entire RA Dream Team will be posting their favorite reads in the second half of December. Our fearless leader, Kathy will be running those consecutively, giving each staff member a day to post their favorites. I will alert you when that begins.
But today it's the best book you read in 2012 that was NOT published in 2012.
For me it was an easy choice. 11/22/63 by Stephen King, with a 2011 publication date, fits this bill. Click here to read my review.
A close second was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline also with a 2011 release date.
Interestingly, I listened to both of these novels. I wonder if that increased my enjoyment of them?
So for today's Monday Discussion, I am asking you to share with me your favorite book you read in 2012 that was NOT published in 2012. Save those 2012 releases for next week.
