It's almost Turkey Day, and I'm thinking we all want an easy, fun few days to surround it, so instead of posting on an industry topic of controversy and/or intensity, I thought this would be a good time to just share some book selections.
Below are Publishers Weekly's choices of their top ten books of 2012. But before we get there. . .
Let's all add one or two. Here's my selection: Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple: it's hilarious, and a little dark and twisty. You'll laugh out loud if you've ever had to deal with holier-than-thou parents at your children's school, or if, by chance, you live in Seattle and don't care much for certain aspects of it (or if you understand why someone else might feel that way until they get to know the city), or if you sometimes think you might be crazy and nobody understands (wait, no, none of us writers ever feel that way).
So, what's your favorite book of 2012?
