My Favorite books from 2011

I have read a lot of books this year. Most were very enjoyable; a few were standouts. Here's my list of standouts. I have included the Amazon link for each of them, not so you will order from Amazon but so you can get reviews and author information. My library "saved list" is full of titles I want to read in 2012

I Married you for Happiness
History of Love
State of Wonder
The Imperfectionists

Country Driving, A Chinese Road Trip
America Aflame, How the Civil War Created a Nation
The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris
Emperor of all Maladies: a Biography of Cancer
House of Prayer No. 2: A Writer's Journey Home


  1. I will make note of your list. The only one I have heard of is State of Wonder. I think my most enjoyable book last year was Major Pettigrew's Last Stand.

  2. Okay, I looked at reviews and then checked in at where I am a member and just ordered History of Love. Looks like a good one as do they all but this was the only one available at PBS.
