Reading Recs — Not Your Typical Best-Ofs

...

3 December 2009

The YEAR IN READING is underway at The Millions: friends of The Millions share the best books they read this year, which is fun, because each writer comes at it personally and passionately.  Better and much more inspiring (I think) than the lists in major publications where the same 20 books are recycled over and over.

Although, Padgett Powell‘s book — the every-sentence-is-a-question book — keeps coming up, everywhere I look.  Gimmick or brilliance?  Definitely seems browseworthy at the least.  I’m also looking forward to reading something by Kate Christensen.
