Hi all, I'm grounded from posting at my site but I decided that it doesn't mean I can't cause a ruckus over here!
I am pretty obsessed with end of the year lists. I especially like the ones that move on from the LARGE BIG SELLERS (Plot Against America) to the smaller lesser known titles and authors. Not that the LARGE BIG SELLERS don't deserve the acclaim (I'm loving Roth right now) but they tend to over-shadow some equally deserving books.
Here are a few:
I just found this one today:
Has anyone read any of these books?
Any recommendations for your "Best Books of 2004"?
I found that I didn't read many books that were published in 2004 (those hard covers are damn expensive.) Of the books that I read in 2004 I would say that The Bone People by Keri Hulme was one of the best.
I'm looking forward to "talking" with all of you!

Thanks Wendy! Looks great.
I've tried to read The Bone People a million times and can never get through it - everyone says it's so great though. Must be something wrong on my end.
One of the best I read last year was The Known World by Edward P. Jones.
