Books of the year

"A book is like a garden carried in the pocket" Chinese proverb
"Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own" William Hazlitt

I love to read and love book lists. Last week The Guardian posted a great list in their Culture Section just in time for the Holiday Gift Giving Season. I love this list as there are lots of books that I am not familiar with.
Here's another link - There's a wonderful blog called From the House of Edward
The November 16th post titled "Tickets" invites readers to recommend favourite books in the "comments" section - I now have a new book list garnered from the 2 links above to keep me going until 2012. If you have a recommendation I would love to add it to my future reading list.

HI Marian, what a lovely treat to have you visit my blog and enter my GIVEAWAY. Don’t you just love H. O. Edward! she’s just so talented. My husband is an artist and has just had a show...when I told him you work in a Bronze foundry he was very interested. I will send you a link of his work when I am not so tired...Again, a pleasure to meet you and good luck on the Giveaway.

I love this time of year when the book lists come out - and I realize all the great books I've been missing. Thanks for adding these lists to my list!
