Lastly, NC State University's The Best Book I Read This Year (which contains books from other years and consists of individuals each choosing a single book).
I don't think I could name the best book I've read this year. While I'm reading each one I've loved, that particular book is the best, because it's the one claiming my attention at the time. Of course, I have favorites, long lists of favorites, but this post is not about me. It's all about other people's lists, so I hope that you find something you'll love.
