Titles to add to your 'books to read' pile


The Globe and Mail (a national Canadian newspaper) has published its Globe 100 - a list of what it deems to be the best 100 books this year, as decided by its reviewers.

The list includes fiction, non-fiction, history, politics, poetry, science, etc. The reviewers admit, that since roughly 200,000 books are published in English each year, the selection is somewhat biased based on what the reviewers have read and the buzz in the industry. In any case, I always enjoy a new read list.

Thanks for posting the list! I live in the US so I didn't know about it. =)

Every once in a while I feel like I should brush up on a particular type of book (usually classics, since I tend to read mainly contemporary stuff). Within a few books, I'm back to my typical read. Good for you for being able to focus like that! :-)

Just because they're on my list, doesn't mean I read them all! LOL The intention is often better than the discipline...

The only time I had fear of writing was a column I once published and feared I might get sued.
You're mighty young so get everything you write out there and don't worry about it because some will like it, some will not and to hell with those who don't.

Nienke Hinton...Ontario, Canada. If I Knew Then, what I know now? I could never own a Monday, much less any one other day of the week. What I do own is my time. Is your time any different than mine?
