Of all the books you read last year (not necessarily published in 2007, but read last year), which were your favorites? Did you read any stinkers? Re-read any classics?
Off the top of my head, my favorite "grown-up" books were Prayer: Does It Make a Difference? by Philip Yancey & The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan; my favorite YA novel was Shackleton's Stowaway by Victoria McKernan. (McKernan really did her homework on this book, traveling across the Atlantic to interview the relatives of Perce Blackborow, Shackleton's real-life teenage stowaway.)
What about you?
P.S. You won't regret following the Pollan links above...REALLY interesting. The thought of my Irish great-grandmother, Annie Larkin, reading the ingredient list on a tube of Gogurt made me laugh out loud...
Update: Last night, as I tossed and turned worrying about money, sleep seemed such a remote option that it only made sense to read. The first book I grabbed was Anna Quindlen's Good Dog. Stay., and IT WAS WONDERFUL. Pull out your credit cards (or library cards, if you're broke, too!) and get this book as quickly as you can. And if you're borrowing the Abilene Public Library's copy, I apologize for the little mascara smudge on page 75. (Mom was right...you should always remove your makeup before bed.)
