Thank's for asking. The best book I've read this year was The Time Traveler's Wife. The devine creativity, awkward settings, distinguished characterizations, characters earthy emotions and time traveling sequences were all deliciously exciting. The second best book I've read this year was The Da Vinci Code, mostly because of its controvercy, however banal and commercial much of the writing seemed.

The best two books I've read this year are 'Broken City' and 'Trinkets of Spring' and the reason they're so great is they're finished!

However, the public may not feel as strongly about this matter as I, but what do they know?
