Dear Readers - Below I have listed books that I have enjoyed the most in my yearly readings.  What you might notice is I am most definitely an eclectic reader.  Books below fall in the following genres: Young Adult, Middle Grades, Contemporary, Mystery, Classic, Literary Fiction, Fantasy, Comics, Sociology, and Literary Criticism.  Possibly much more even.  Some years were better than others, and I am sure that I could have easily added another five to ten in each list.
