2011 Reading List

Well, 2011 turned out to not be my most productive year of reading, but here it is, with comments:

Book that I was glad I read even though I didn't expect I would say so: Decision Points by George W. Bush

Best written/best use of language:" Pacazo by Roy Kesey

Book I listened to, but wish I would have read instead:" Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson

Book that made me think the most about the future (tie); The Next 100 Years by George Friedman and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Most creative and I wanted more: How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive by Christopher Boucher

Book that has changed my life (at least for now): Eat to Live by Dr. Furhmann

Book I would like to see made a movie: Once Upon a River by Bonnie Jo Campbell

Had I seen the size of the hardcover first, would I have read the digital copy?: Hero: The Life of Lawrence Arabia by Michael Korda
