Books for Sale

The 10 Best Books of 2006

Tis the season for lists!
The link above leads to the list from the New York Times. It includes one book that I've read this year and can recommend highly: The Emperor's Children by Claire Messud. It would make a good gift for the book-lover on your list!

I can also recommend The Book Thief, listed right now on the right as one of the books I'm currently reading. So far it's engrossing and beautifully written. It's set in World War II Germany and narrated by Death. (It's also perched atop Amazon's top ten teen books of 2006, but don't let that dissuade you.)

Have you read any of the books on the Times list? And what was your favorite book you read during 2006?
