Better late than never?
And, hey, doing the half-year late means we're marching right along to the big end-of-year book breakdown by genre, etc. I enjoyed reading over my selections from last year and I've already started thinking of what I'll include this year.
sgwordy's Read in 2011 list
One thing that has become abundantly clear to me is that I'm obviously leaving my 2011 reading challenge books for end of the year holidays. Hmmm...
Half-year Results -
Best fiction: Tie!
Shibumi by Trevanian
The Known World by Edward P. Jones
Dark Alliance by Gary Webb
Favorite author discovered this year:
Most re-read book first read this year:
A couple Georgette Heyer books go here. They're short, cute, and comforting when I read a couple duds in a row or a book that leaves me emotionally wrung out.
* I read so much non-fiction that I enjoyed that I'd like to list a few more titles I recommend:
Moneyball by Michael Lewis
Native American Son by Mary Buford
Reality is Broken by Jane McGonagel
