A Year In Reading

I was going over what I'd read this year in order to pick out my favourites for a list at work and I realised that 2011 has been an excellent reading year. I wanted almost all the books I read to be my favourites, because I got so much enjoyment from so many of them. Perhaps I picked well, in terms of what I happened to be in the mood for, or perhaps I was just lucky to come across so much great stuff. Two that I regretfully bumped off the final list were When God Was A Rabbit and Once Upon A River which I posted about earlier this year. Both these books hung around in my mind for ages after I finished them. They were wonderful. Another standout was How I Became A Famous Novelist.

In the craziness that is December, I may not have a lot of time for blog posting but I'll hopefully have time to do plenty of reading, and will catch up on my posting in the new year. Buon Natale!
