I started compiling my list a few weeks ago for my favorite books of the year. I'm still not sure I got them all - and I cheated - I couldn't stop at just 10!
My choices may seem a bit odd or eclectic - but that's me. Books making it on my list may or may not be the "very best" according to the publishing industry or by literary standards, but they ARE my favorites - because most of all they entertained me (my most important criteria for fiction) or educated me, stuck with me, and perhaps even changed me or stirred me to want to change. I'm sure I've forgotten one - but right now I can't figure out which one!

Merry Christmas my friends. May the Lord be very present in all your celebrations, and may He pour out His spirit and power upon His people.
