Books 2008

well, nothing like no explanation, eh? I wanted to shorten my posted book list but didn't want to lose the I plopped them onto a post, and then was called away. This isn't conclusive, just what I managed to note. It would be difficult to pick a favorite of these, but Junot Diaz's novel might be it. I still recall the vibrancy of both tale and language. I see I didn't include any of the Toni Nelson books I know I read, nor the Ann Patchett books, either. Such an inadequate list. Oh well.

Bearing the Body; Ehud Havazalet
