Amazon’s Best Books of 2011 Reading Challenge (2012)


Amazon best books reading challengeCOMPLETED

Cassandra over at Wickedly Delicious Tales is hosting the 2012 Amazon Best Books of 2011 Reading Challenge.

Since four of the books on my 2012 reading list are Amazon editors’ picks for last year, I’m going to enter this at the Novice level which requires me to choose another, for a total of five books.

Here’s the Amazon list.

Here are my original choices for this challenge and my YEAR-END UPDATE:

1. The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach

2. The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

3. The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt

4. A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor

4. 11/22/63 by Stephen King

5. The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje

    Thank you for joining! As for the fifth book, based on your others listed, maybe try The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides?

    The Marriage Plot is a definite possibility, Cassandra – thanks for the welcome and the recommendation!

    Thank you, Cassandra – I might just do that. There are a lot more titles on this year’s list that are also on my radar for this year.
