Some friends and I put together a list for Relevant Magazine of the Top 10 Books of 2011. Here is that list.
Maybe the only things better than reading a great book are talking about a great book with someone who has read it too, and recommending a great book to someone you just know will love it. Reading a great book may begin as a solitary experience, but it doesn’t stay that way for long. Here, then, are our picks for the 10 best books of the year, along with five very honorable mentions. Leave a comment to let us know if you agree or disagree. And be sure to give us your recommendations for the year’s best book. There’s always a book-shaped hole to fill in the suitcase we’re taking to grandma’s house for the holidays.
