This week Booking Through Thursday asked the following:
What were your favorite books of 2011?
I read quite a few good books this year, although a lot of what I read were ones I had to read for my studies. One bonus was rereading the Narnia and Lord of the Rings books for a course on the theology of Lewis and Tolkien. Other than that, my favourite five, in no particular order, were:
- ‘The Man Who Loved Books Too Much’ – Allison Hoover Bartlett
- ‘Five by Endo’ – Shusaku Endo
- ‘Night’ – Elie Wiesel
- ‘Football Against the Enemy’ – Simon Kuper
- ‘Love Wins’ – Rob Bell
Although I fell short of my goal of reading 75 books in 2011 (I almost made it to 60), I still had an enjoyable year of reading. Roll on 2012!
