As I wrote yesterday’s post, it occurred to me that this blog turned two years old this week. It’s been another great year of reading and writing about reading. To celebrate, please leave a comment about the best book you read in the past year!

I don’t know if this really counts, since I read it before this year, too, but I have to give my vote to The Boys of My Youth by Jo Ann Beard. I was re-reading a passage from it yesterday and the returns never diminish. Currently, I’m in the middle of Amy Bender’s The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake–it’s already a front runner for next year’s favorite.

Can’t wait to hear from you!
