I logged 43 books for the year. Of those 9 were non-fiction/34 fiction. I keep my log in table format on my computer. I have been faithful for about 5 years now. Previously I kept a handwritten log and fizzled out because I made too many demands on myself (writing little book reviews, etc.) Now I use a star system and write a few words if I am so inclined.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Sorry to be so cliche. Many consider this book to be the best American novel of the 20th century. I agree it has to be at the top.
Best FictionThe Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton. This was a difficult decision. There were probably several that ranked right up there with this one.
Best Non Fiction
The World I Live In by Helen Keller. Written by her at the tender age of 18.
Kindred by Octavia Butler. I normally do not read science fiction. This is a time-travel book so some may not consider it sci-fi.
Best Memoir (I can't decide between these 2)
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
Red Rowan and Wild Honey by Betsey Whyte. Sequel to Yellow on the Broom. Betsey Whyte grew up as a traveler (also known as gypsies) in Scotland.
