Book Report

{Tom Bendtsen's Conversations #2, 2008}

Is there anything better than a really, really good book?  I've always been a big reader, and to this day there's nothing I'd rather do on a rainy afternoon than sit in front of a fire cozied up with a book.  The best novels are the ones you never want to put down, and here are a few that had my complete attention from start to finish:

  1. The English Patient - Michael Ondaatje (and anything by him)
  2. The Summer Fletcher Greel Loved Me - Suzanne Kingsbury
  3. Late Nights on Air - Elizabeth Hay
  4. Water For Elephants - Sara Gruen
  5. Paint It Black - Janet Finch
  6. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
  7. Testimony - Anita Shreve
  8. Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen
  9. Pretty Little Dirty - Amanda Boyden
  10. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
  11. The Girls' Guide to Hunting And Fishing - Melissa Bank
  12. East of Eden - John Steinbeck
  13. Dress Your Family in Corduroy + Denim - David Sedaris (read one of the funniest excerpts here)
