I read 69 books this year, up from 57 in 2009. It must be because I finished school in June. There's a lot more time to read when you're not in grad school. Actually, there's a lot more time for everything else when you're not in grad school.
Here are my top reads for 2010:
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
This book made me weep, and made my heart hurt a little because it was so true.
Food for Thought:
Two is Enough - A Couple's Guide to Living Childless by Choice by Laura S. Scott
A perspective that is not really talked about and maybe not even that socially accepted.
Best Sunday Afternoon Read:
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
Only start this if you have an entire afternoon free, because you won't want to put it down.
Best for the Ethnic Identity Journey:
Lucky Girl by Mei-Ling Hopgood
Thoughtful and well-written.
Best for Rest:
Sabbath - Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives by Wayne Muller
Ahh...rest, may you find plenty of it in 2011.
Thanks for reading with me this year! I'm curious to know what your favorite books were this year...please leave a comment and let me know. I'm always looking for another good book to read.
