The first of the year and it's summary time. (That's not summery time, at least here in Toronto, alas. There are flurries falling as I compose this.)
The best books I read this year:
- This one didn't get a post, but it has become my favorite Michael Chabon novel, and he's a favorite of mine to begin with. 'Mike' tells stories of his 'grandfather'.
- This may be only my third or fourth favorite of her novels, but that's still enough to get it on this list
The Case Of The Constant Suicides
- In which the author of this post realizes he's seriously underestimated Carr.
-A love story between socially maladroit intellectuals that left me with a new bunch of books I wanted to read. What's not to like?
The Book of Disquiet
-One of those books I wanted to read after Compass.
That's out of 126 total books for me. Some statistics: 35% of them came from the library (love live the Toronto Public Library!) 26% of them were written by women. Sixty got posts written for them.
There will be a couple of challenge wrap-up posts yet to come.
It was a good reading year. Hope yours was as well, and your next one even better. Happy 2018!
