What’s Your Favorite?

December 19, 2006

There are many books awards given out over the year with selections made by a variety of judges and panels. Many of those highly-regarded books don’t necessarily find themselves on the best-seller lists which suggests that the book-buying public thinks differently about what makes a good book–assuming one you’d buy is one you’d like. So what we want to know is, what was your favorite book published in 2006? To be honest, I don’t have one this year. But I don’t have a favorite color either so you can write me off as undecided or wishy-washy. I have high hopes for some that I haven’t had a chance to read yet like The Emperor’s Children by Claire Messud. I enjoyed Apex Hides The Hurt by Colson Whitehead and Old Filth by Jane Gardam as far as fiction goes–which remindes me that I should read more non-fiction since there were many choices there this year including The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson and Uncommon Carriers by John McPhee.

    War of the World by Niall Ferguson – it is longer than his book Empire but worth reading and equally as relevent in helping understand our current foreign policies.
