Beth’s Best Reads of 2011
Have you ever tried keeping a list of all the books you read or all the movies you watch in a year? For the past few years I’ve done both, and have been pleased at how satisfying it’s been to see the list as winter winds down. For someone who finds value in reading, it gives me a real sense of accomplishment to look back over the selection and realize I’ve fed my brain a variety of tasty morsels.
Fiction and non-fiction, poetry and memoir, history and fantasy, new books and old books and more. It’s a veritable feast. As 2011 comes to a close, here are the 25 books I liked best of those I read this year. I hope you find some to add to your to-read list, and look forward to hearing everyone else’s recommendations as well. Enjoy!
