Best books of 2007...



According to Time Magazine, these are the best books of the year. Have you read any? The only one that I've read is A Thousand Splendid Suns. I'm not a big fan of short stories and a few of these are collections of stories. I like to dig into a juicy novel and go along for the ride. Can you believe I have never read a single Harry Potter story? Nope.
Fiction:
The Post-Birthday World - Lionel Shriver
Like You'd Understand, Anyway - Jim Shepard
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling
No One Belongs Here More Than You - Miranda July
The House of Meetings - Martin Amis
Tree of Smoke - Denis Johnson
Out Stealing Horses: A Novel - Per Petterson
A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
Then We Came to the End: A Novel - Joshua Ferris
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Díaz
Non-Fiction
A Life of Picasso: The Triumphant Years, 1917 - 1932By John Richardson
The World Without Us By Alan Weisman

Because of the Time article, I picked up The Post-Birthday World. It was awesome. My fave book of 07 that was written in 07.

I don't do Harry Potter so I've never read one either! @ 9:56 PM
